Monthly Meeting 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. via Zoom

June 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Our 40th Celebration and Volunteer Appreciation have been postponed until September when we hope to meet again in person.

Topic: Reading Old English Handwriting

Presenter: Larry Gilchrist

When you first see Old English handwriting, it looks difficult to read. But it really is beautiful and fascinating. Once you learn to read it, you will appreciate it more, and perhaps gain some respect for the scribes who painstakingly produced parish registers, probate records, manor records, and all the other manuscript sources we encounter in our research. Former AFHS president Larry Gilchrist will give us tips on deciphering old handwriting and learning to appreciate its beauty.
