How I transcribed a testament (will) of 1570
Dorothy Coltrin

Dorothy's previously scheduled discussion of what it took to transcribe "secretary hand" used in 16th Century Scotland was postponed due to inclement weather. She created a modern version of the will and then deciphered the structure of the Rolland Acoltrane family of Wigtownshire, Scotland. Dorothy is a member of W.I.S.E. as well as the Boulder Genealogical Society, the New England Historic Genealogical Society and is treasurer of the Colorado Council of Genealogical Societies.
This program was previously scheduled Dec 2011.
