  • Hi everyone on this list, Before this thread is, I hope, allowed to just die, there are three apologies I would like to make publicly: 1) To the unnamed gentlemen to whom my initial post on this thread was addressed and intended - I'm sorry my original post to you initiated this catastrophe and I hope you will still consider investigating the URL I posted relative to your question...

  • Hi Xenia, From the very first post under this thread, I clearly indicated that it was directed to one particular person who WAS at the meeting for whom I did not have a name and, therefore, could not just write a private email. I am at a loss as to why you seem to want to rip into about what was or was not included in my talk when you weren't there to hear it. Also, it is...

  • Hi Xenia, I think you have misinterpreted the overall intent of this posting. The inadequacies of computer translators was one theme I did discuss in my talk last night. I'm sorry you weren't there to hear it. However, THIS post was put up to help answer a specific question about learning to read early French LETTERING posed by a person who was at the meeting. The webpage is a...

  • At the meeting, after our panel dispersed, a gentlemen came up to me and specifically asked about reading a 17th century French document (he had the original) and then translating himself on computer. I'm sorry I did not get your name, but this post may be of particular interest to you. It is written in French, but you can put the URL into a translator to read it into the rough by...

  • This morning while I was hunting on the web, I literally stumbled onto this great website that shows examples of a number of different archaic scripts. After last night's panel discussion, I thought it would be appropriate to share it with the group so that everyone could check it out: http://medievalwriting.50megs.com/scripts/scrindex.htm Joyce PS: I'm kicking myself for blowing...

  • Hi Everyone, I am wondering if some kind soul is willing to help me decipher at least part of a notarial document (Concession "Baille"?) written in French. The handwriting is quite poor and it contains both archaic spellings and misspellings. It is important that I get the translation of this particular document precisely right, but I fear my limited French vocabulary and failing...

  • Hi Mary, I've used a few different programs over the years and still tend to go back to Family Treemaker to produce quick, easy, and attractive charts (but I am using Version 11, so this aspect of the program may have changed substantially since then). However, it has been my general impression that it has been a "leader" in the field of charting pretty much since it was first...

  • Hi, I think two big questions you have to answer first is what do you want to do with your scanner (photos, 35 mm negatives, odd size negatives, pdfs and/or OCR docs, email, etc. I have two Canons and like them both for different reasons - The FB630U is older but it is very small and compact and propelled completely from the power of my laptop (i.e. I don't need to plug it in to us...
