Default Anyone up for a transcribing challenge??

I have a will from 1830 I've been struggling with. The writing is mostly OK but every so often a line is horrid and my eyes are not great (yes.....I do have my glasses on..lol)

If anyone feels like a quest, I'm happy to email it.

Thanks.

All done!! I do love a good Will to get my teeth into.

Think I may have found my niche on here seeing as I can't beat any of the researchers to anything.

Zoe................the only thing stopping me buying more of them is transcribing.....lol

You may have opened your mouth too soon. Just don't charge by the hour.....you'll never make any money.

*notes that Zoe gets her kicks from reading old documents*

Ahem.....I have a will dating from 1823...the writing is clear enough, it's the legalese that defeats me .....I've been trying to find out for years if it says why the son and heir was disinherited

Be careful, the last time I said something like that someone sent me a 12 page will with about six codicils and abut half of each page was almost entirely black, with just the odd hint of text!

and here is the reason I'd never make money out if it: I get the general gist of most of them but if they start repeating their heretos and whereinafters too much then I get lost
