The below samples include documents from 1678 to 1924. As you can see, the script varies from document to document, as no two persons’ handwriting is exactly alike. If any handwritten letter or word is not 100% clear in your document, I mark the word in brackets or inform you of this in the footnotes. Footnotes may also be used to provide additional information regarding certain words from the time period.
