“Tricks For Reading Old Handwriting” Program For Genealogists

LIBERTY February 6, 2018 - The Liberty County Genealogical Society will hold its monthly meeting Tuesday, February 19th, 2019 in the DAR Meeting Room behind the historic Cleveland-Partlow House on Grand Avenue in Liberty at 10:00 a.m.

February’s program will be an hour-long webinar entitled “TRICKS FOR READING OLD HANDWRITING” from D. Joshua Taylor, a nationally known and recognized genealogical author, lecturer and researcher. Mr. Taylor states: “In genealogy we encounter many handwritten materials, from deeds to personal family letters and diaries.  Understanding and reading those records can often solve family riddles but deciphering the words behind fancy flourishes and sweeping script can be a pain.  You may never become totally fluent in a particular style of handwriting, but you can learn enough to discover data and reveal names.” In this webinar, you’ll learn how to draw important information out of hard-to-read handwriting.  Join us for this fascinating and informative webinar!

New LCGS officers for 2019-2020 are:  Linda Jamison, President; Kathy Franssen, Vice-President; Susan Allison, Secretary and Betty Reeves, Treasurer.  New members are invited as LCGS begins the year with many great programs, workshops and webinars on the “how-to” of genealogical research, discovering your family history and ancestors!  Other workshops and programs in the coming months include: WHAT ELSE CAN THE CENSUS TELL ME; USING HISTORICAL MAPS TO SOLVE GENEALOGY PROBLEMS; I SEEK DEAD PEOPLE: TRICKS FOR RESEARCHING AN ANCESTOR’S PASSING; FINDING YOUR FEMALE ANCESTORS; FOLLOWING THE EVIDENCE (With a Case Study); State Research in Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, North Carolina naming only a few!  LCGS will sponsor an all-day workshop in May, “RESEARCH LIKE A PRO” with lunch included!  For
