Gothic handwriting – 2

In the last “installment” of this “course” I promised to be back with more. I have gone through some records from the first part of the 1700s and tried to recognise the letters there. As we see, the letters are much more difficult to read than in the illustration I shared in the first installment.

As you can see, for some of the letters I have added different versions. I am sorry to say that for most of the letters, many more versions could have been added. Let us take some time and study this illustration. If you want to follow me in my quest for better understanding of Gothic handwriting, be sure to check the third installment.
