Sample Alphabet Letters

When trying to puzzle out a particularly tricky word, sometimes it helps to see several different examples of how certain Gothic letters were written.  I decided to compile a list of sample letters -- most of these samples came from online matriky books (vital records) on the Czech archive websites, and a few of them came from some of our old family letters.  I placed each letter in relationship to the line as it was written in the original source.
