Help in transcribing illegible documents #general


Sara Manobla
 

I have inherited a fascinating family archive (in French) of letters, diaries, press cuttings and more, from Paris of the 1940s, including the German occupation. When I have sorted the documents they will be sent to the library of l'Alliance Israelite Universelle in Paris. Currently I am transcribing handwritten letters and diaries that are of personal interest to our family. While I can read most of the material without difficulty there are some letters and diaries that are practically illegible, even for a native French speaker. Are there any tools that can help - scan, enlarge, transcribe a difficult handwritten text? Any ideas? Suggestions welcome.
