Is there anyone in the society or anyone that they know that can read cursive German of 1777? I have a copy of a Will that is in German cursive and I need two pages translated.
I have had good luck with my genealogy questions using some of the groups on Facebook. Two groups which may be helpful to you are the German Genealogy Records Transcription Group – they will TRANSCRIBE German script (which you can put into an online translator or otherwise translate), or the German Genealogy Translation Group – they will TRANSLATE German verbiage. I also met a fellow specializing in German Translation of old script and PA German topics at the Moravian Archives in Bethlehem, PA. I cannot vouch for him (although he seemed well known at the archives and was working on old German documents). Edward E Quinter, email@example.com. There would be a fee, I’d guess.
