Translation Cheat Sheets from Family History Elder

Postby mascarellafam » 17 Aug 2011, 20:44

I have a wonderful set of "cheat sheets" that an Elder at the Family History building in Utah gave me. I wanted to pass it on to others as it is so valuable in doing research.

Translations of what Birth, Death and Marriage Certificates say. It also has Italian Words List (numbers, dates, weekdays and months) and General Genealogy Terms.

What is amazingly valuable here is the Alphabet Variations. It is the alphabet (capital and small letters) from the progression of 1600 to 2000. For example, a B originally looks like an L in cursive! Who knew!

I am so grateful to this gentleman that I thought it would be nice to pass it on to others.

I have tried to attach the PDF but it won't attach. I then tried doing JPEG for each sheet, but it only allows 3 sheets. The first 3 are Birth, Death and Marriage translations. The second is 2 pages of words list and the last is the alphabet. I can email you the PDF of all together if you wish. Just contact me.

I am **SPAM** NOTHING and want nothing but to see others connect with their families.

All the best,
Cathy

Great work guys! Thanks for more input.

If anyone wants the alphabet and other pages, just email me. I could not post the other pages. It would only let me do those 3 and no more. I have a PDF of all of them in one group.
