Today the Swedish Genealogy Guide released a new video called Reading Gothic Handwriting for Swedish Genealogy. This is the 1st of a 3 part series. This lesson is focused on learning the gothic handwritten font. It begins with a brief explanation using an alphabet example from 1778. The lesson continues using alphabet samples with a focus on letters that people struggle with the most. It finishes with tips to unlock those early Swedish records! See https://youtu.be/UL0wFoBaCXs
