Recently I began jotting down the genealogy notations or inscriptions on antique items I spot in antique stores. I've put some of these online on Olive Tree Genealogy's NEW page on Facebook. You can join us (it's free) to get daily feeds of Blog Posts, articles and discussions. It's interactive, videos, photos, etc are allowed. You can also post queries about pretty much anything that is genealogy related if you want to join us.
You do have to set up a Facebook Profile if you don't have one, but that's free too. And you can make your Facebook profile PRIVATE so no need to worry about strangers getting hold of your personal info. You can also put in as little or as much as you want about yourself.
Today I uploaded examples of early 16th and 17th Century handwriting to the Olive Tree Genealogy page on Facebook. You can download these examples to your computer to use as references to help you when you are reading old documents.
