SLIG 2019 Highlight - Gothic Script Course

F. Warren Bittner will be back at SLIG in 2019 coordinating his course on Gothic Script and Fraktur.

German handwriting is troublesome with seven forms of the letter s, h’s that look like f’s, e’s that look like n’s, p’s that look like nothing every seen before, and r’s that are just plain upside down. Students in Reading German Records will learn to read Gothic Script and Fracture Typeface and have fun in the process. This course will include German genealogical vocabulary and Latin terms. By the end of the course students will have the tools needed to read basic German genealogical records.

Kathy Holland blogged about her previous experience in Warren's course here.
