I did it! (transcribing the 8 page will from 1832) You were so right about "getting my eye in" The first page was quite a struggle, but as I got used to it the whole thing got easier. The BEST info I got which helped enormously was to scan it into Adobe Reader and magnify it. So, for all you budding "will readers" out there, I hope that helps.

Mind you mine was all in English (not latin etc) I am so glad that you didn't do it for me, I had a great sense of accomplishment when I finished. I must admit though it stayed in the "too hard" basket for quite a long while

Cheers Fay
