  1. Wow! It's always really fun to see such old documents, but it's also a good reminder that students today need to learn cursive in school or they won't be able to read old documents. And that's important for more than genealogy research.

    Thanks for posting!

  2. Hi Cheryl, I too love these old documents, so much information can be obtained from them...and some (many) are so hard to read due to the writing..

    Thanks for stopping by! :)
