Re: Need to have a Stenographic Shorthand Note Deciphered #translation

Nicole Heymans

Hi Mark,

I discovered about 17 years ago when attempting to make sense of my mother's 1942/1943 diary, entirely in shorthand, totally unrecognizable at first although I had learned shorthand at school, that there are at least as many shorthand systems as languages and probably many more.

It would help others to help you if you could provide a suggestion as to the probable language of the shorthand writer. It looks German to me but I have absolutely no knowledge of English shorthand.

Happy hunting,

Nicole Heymans, near Brussels, Belgium
