Nineteenth-century handwriting can be tricky to read! Here are a few tips:

  • Compare words and letters throughout the page to confirm you are reading the text correctly.
  • Consider the context, how can the rest of the story help you figure out a difficult word?
  • If you are stuck on a word, just write [illegible] and then move on to the next word.
  • Have fun! If you don’t get a word right, no need to worry! We are crowd-sourcing these transcriptions so that together – we will figure out all the words. Archivists and curators do this as well, we have multiple people transcribe the same historic document to ensure accuracy.
