C16th will: would this be OK?
« on: Saturday 05 January 19 12:45 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to become more proficient at transcribing myself, rather than having to constantly ask for the help generously offered on RootsChat. If I posted original images of a will with as much of it transcribed as I can manage, would that be OK? I can (I think) make out about half of it, so it would take rather a long time to keep posting odd words which are stumping me.

Thatís an excellent idea.

I suggest you post the will in short maneagable chunks.

There are some online guides to handwriting.

I think I'm right in saying that RootsChat would prefer that any 'chunks' posted do not add up to the whole will.  Digital images are inevitably subject to some form of either copyright or terms of use, whatever their source.  RootsChat would prefer not to antagonise such sites or garner unwanted attention by allowing breaches of their terms and conditions.

So please may we ask you to consider carefully what you post. 

Thanks

Nell

My apologies, I should have consulted a Mod. before posting.
