Help with sentence on 1569 Will please
« on: Friday 11 June 21 14:36 BST (UK) »
Can anyone decipher the middle sentence on this will please. If anyone can do more then that would maybe confirm anything that I have done.

Thank you

Thank you.  'My wife Katheryne' is what I had hoped that someone could confirm  as I wasn't sure. And thank you for the rest as that is a real bonus.

The will is faded just where I need to read it :(. But at least I have the name of his wife.)

Any ideas on what I can do to make the faded area any more readable?

Thank you

Two things you can try:

1)  inverting the colors (can be done in Paint); and

2)  increasing the contrast of the original.

They might reveal a little more but probably won't be a panacea.

Thank you.
Have tried increasing the contrast and clarity etc. It has helped a little.
Have not tried inverting the colours - but will.

Thank you.
