I saw this today on the National Genealogical Society website – Reading Old Handwriting – National Genealogical Society November 11, 2020: https://www.ngsgenealogy.org/cgs/reading-old-handwriting/. It’s $75 for members and $100 for non-members. There are ten modules in the course so $7.50 or $10/module. It’s online.
Reading old handwriting is an essential skill for genealogists but sometimes it can be challenging. Genealogists study and practice reading old handwriting in order to read and interpret the documents essential to family history research such as probate files, wills, land records, deeds, and court files. Many documents require the genealogist to read old handwriting to transcribe, abstract, or extract the pertinent data and use it in their family history.
This illustrated course explains the writing systems and styles used in the United States during the last three centuries. Every module has multiple hands-on exercises to develop expertise in reading handwriting from a variety of locations and time periods. Upon completion of the course, students will have techniques and strategies for reading handwritten documents encountered in their research.
