Palaeography

 

Transcript of documents can be undertaken for all documents in English dating from 1500 to 1800.  The usual hourly rate is charged, and if the document is a standard one in good condition the time taken will be the time it takes to type - and I type very quickly.  Please send reference or scan of document for an estimate.  

Transcripts can be with modern spelling, paragraphs and punctuation, but retaining original spelling for names and places, for easy reading.  Or transcripts can be literal with original spelling

Documents regularly transcribed include

  •  Chancery records
  • Deeds
  • wills
  • manorial records, 
  • Diaries
