Old Title deeds are part of my job, and although I handle them everyday they are not great to handle or read and as for trying to copy them for legal purposes, that's another story.......... Producing title deeds in the 21st Century, using a computer is much easier, but back then they wouldn't have known any different. What would they think of computers?

Then as part of my family history research I found some relating to my 3xgreat grandfather's business - parchment style, fancy handwriting, etc.

Brilliant - two worlds collide. Someone sat there and produced my ancestor's deeds and now I sit and produce the same - in years to come will our descendants wonder the same of me?
