Deciphering Handwritten Records

When learning to decipher German & Latin vital records written in Bohemia, an alphabet chart with sample letters can be invaluable.  There are many such sample alphabet charts online, but this is my chart of choice.  This chart sat beside me through my first few years of intense research, and I still reference it today when I get stuck on a tricky bit of handwriting.  

This Alphabet Chart came from the 2011 article, "Helps for Translating That Old 
German Handwriting," an article with several other helpful handwriting samples and tutorials.
