A transcription service kept of all your records.
- You are an individual and you have found ancient manuscripts of the public record or you have yourself in your family archive of old contracts and other ancient writings (letters, notarized contracts from the Middle Ages to the 18th century parish registers) that you do not read ?
- You are a student of history, geography or sociology, you are simply passionate historian or local history, you want to analyze the contents of old contracts but do not have time to learn the basics in paleography to decipher the ancient writings ?
- You are a professional genealogist and you want to outsource the transcription stage ?
Upon providing a copy of your document (high resolution photograph or scanned image) I convey to you after confirmation of a quote from a very neat full transcript of your paper work, respecting the original spelling and integrating if you wish (optional) an explanation of ancients terms used in the former recorded document.
