Need help with one letter in names
« on: Saturday 01 August 20 11:35 BST (UK) »
Hi there,

I need help with one letter that I can't seem to figure out, I believe in the first transcript the last name is either Safein? or Sapein? Please help :)

p.s. I have added other examples if you need more let me know..

I read it as Safein.  If you look - the tops of some of the letters are fainter than the rest of the letter

I don't know what the name is BUT I do not think that there is a letter "f" in it - look at "of" and "from"
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!
If you don't ask the question, you won't get an answer.

The name in the second of your three clips is John Dac?ers  :-\

I think the name in the bottom clip is John Lake.
