You can put it on ViewMate, use one of the Translation groups, or you can do it yourself. FamilySearch.org has all sorts of genealogical guides, including old German Script. I found one in a Norwegian guide, but it may be easier now when you can search online.

"FamilySearch.org has all sorts of genealogical guides, including old German Script".

Having taught myself to read the old German script, I am still occasionally stymied, so the more help, the better.

Can you provide some guidance as to where to find this guide on Family Search, as I am not having any success.  Do you have a direct link?  Thanks!

I googled 'Old German Script Handwriting Guide', and surprise, surprise, it came up. I won't provide the link, I will provide a way to find what you are looking for! It is much better to learn how to do things than to have to ask for everything.

Agreed. They offer a three-part course in reading old German handwriting (Kurrentschrift), as well as various supporting handouts. See https://www.familysearch.org/ask/learningViewer/38.
