I am doing ok with these records now, except for last names and some professions.
You are doing really well with these records, Jerry. I wish others who upload records for translation on the forum would make the effort that you do to learn to read these documents themselves. It is so rewarding to be able to decipher these records and discover what they are telling us. Last names in towns in which I have not done research though are still a challenge, even for me, and I've been doing this kind of research for close to 20 years now. Erudita
