Wrapping Up Issue 6

Issue 6 is being wrapped up this weekend. If you subscribe now you can get on the distribution list. Issue 6 compares an original deed with the courthouse transcription from the 1860 era. Rather interesting. I'm thinking in future issues, I'd like to compare other handwritten courthouse copies with the original documents. I will have to keep my eyes on Ebay for items that are for sale.

If you've never copied a document by hand it's a worthwhile experience to do so considering how many handwritten "copies" of records genealogists use. Writing issue 6 has been a learning experience for me as well.

Issue 6 will have complete images too!
