Forgotten the procedure for help getting handwriting deciphered
« on: Monday 21 May 18 20:07 BST (UK) »
Hello All,

I have an Ancestry account and I'm trying to read the handwriting on a document included therein.

I'm hoping for a second pair of eyes to try and work out what it says. I can't remember how to post this without falling foul of the rules. 

Thank you

gives you information about posting re copyright.
You don't say if it's a will, or BMD record or something else, and so whether it's under copyright.
The general rule is to post a section of it to start with, then you don't fall foul of copyright.
