Re: TINNEY, Rebecca (1860-1911)

Eric:

Thanks. I agree with you.

People back then (and many still today) must have been hired by the
government for how they voted rather than for good penmanship. Some of these
entries are unbelievably p**s poor handwriting.

Also, some of the penmanship of the various clergy in the recording of
church records leaves lots to be desired as well of ³educated²
professionals.

Of course back then it was probably inconceivably of them that people like
us genealogy addicts would be trying to decipher some of their ink
scratchings 100 years later.
