Do you read latin? If not, how do you translate?
When my mom was doing research, she went to cemetaries, county records, wrote lots of letters to many family members and she and my Dad went to England and Scotland.
Let's just say I'm learning to by using a latin to english dictionary I found on line. I am writing down a list of words that are repeated through out each of the different records(marriage, baptism and death). Each set of records follows the same set up, if I can pick out the names that's most of the battle. It also helps that I have 2 cousins from that side of the family that can take a look at a record if I have questions. One can read a bit of latin and has been learning Polish. There are some cemetery records on line now as well and that helps.
