Can't Transcribe that Word?

When transcribing a document that has one word that is difficult to read, try typing in the mystery word and two words before it and two words after it.

You may get some suggestions in your search results.

Of course search results may not indicate what the mystery word is in your document, but they may give you some ideas.

  1. Good advice. Many words in a sentence, obituary, baptisms, etc flow together and the above advice could be very useful in determining reading a difficult word.
