Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / What comes after Elizabetha?
« on: Friday 01 December 17 22:59 GMT (UK)  »
Can anyone please help decipher what comes after the mother's name on this baptism for 2 Sept 1686 at St Edward's in Leek (the middle line)? I'm also guessing that the baptism is for a boy whose name starts with a T.

Thanks

David

I think itís been written as Rumney. Rhymney would make sense. Iíve found spellings to be quite varied for a lot of place names in Wales, one L instead of two at the beginning of names is quite common for example.

The v5 book can be downloaded for free. It will cover most of the basic stuff and as has been mentioned previously the help in v6 is pretty good.

I agree Mike, thatís just what I do . Often you can spot where people live close together on censuses by spotting adjacent pages. The main trouble is the very long path named you can generate 😐

Have you tried OneNote? I use it extensively to organise newspaper references including pdfs of pages and images. OneNote will also do OCR on images. Itís easy to cross-reference other pages, files and web pages. I think itís free now, but I still use a version that I got with MS Office 2010

Youíve got two problems here, data storage and data organisation. Thereís plenty of programs you can use to organise your family history research, most available for a modest sum. Data storage is another matter. I have about 60Gb of stuff at the moment and I keep it on a big external QNAP network drive with all my family photos and music. That means it can be used by all the pc and tablets in the house. I also make sure itís backed up regularly to SD Card and other devices.

Iíd recommend Family Historian as the best software but Iím sure youíll get lots of different suggestions from folks on here

I think I made the same mistake initially thinking that the address was closer to Stottesdon than it is. Thanks for the planing link - Iíll follow  that up  :)
