This weekend I am attending a two day class on reading German Script.
It is proving to be great. What we covered is Sutterlin and Kurrent. We can now read the letters when printed with much accuracy but, as with any cursive writing, it is difficult with the variations of penmanship.
Tomorrow we will learn Fraktur. My Mutti had a Fairy Tale Book written in Fraktur, so perhaps I can read it, or at least identify what is written.
What I found on reading some of the old Church records is that there is a combination of styles in some of the records. Some of the letters are Roman Script and some German Script. The Roman letters are no problem.
After this class I (hopefully) will be able to read the old records, or at least give it a shot.
