Palaeography & Transcriptions

Reading old documents can be extremely difficult due to difference in letter formation and the many colloquial and legal terms which are no longer in common use. We can use our skills in Palaeography (the study of ancient and historical handwriting) to help you to decipher old sasines, wills, deeds and other historical documents.
