Deciphering Census Handwriting #general

Carol Raspler

One of our wonderful local LDS volunteers once taught me to read all
words on a document _other_ than my own to see if I could understand
the basic handwriting. Then comparing individual letters, try to do
your own deciphering -- something akin to handwriting analysis.

which, I cannot decipher.
