1548 Will, Done Well!

Emma is awesome. The will from 1548 was written in middle English and had some Latin in it I think. I asked for it to be transcribed into the original English version and for it to be translated into modern English because I wanted to show my kids that whole process and because language is fascinating - and Emma knows language. It uncovered surprising details I could not see, for example that this person bequeathed money to the poor in his town and surrounding towns both on the day of his death and as an annual payment spread over years. Without Emma's work, I would never have known that! Now, thanks to Emma, I have more tools my family and I can learn from and a deeper, more connected understanding of the past. I recommend you use her services.

WW1 National Archive Documents

Emma has produced a fantastic transcription of our Great Great Grandfather's National Archive documents. Without her talent for transcription we simply would not have been able to make real progress in transcribing documents that are now over a century old - and littered with military abbreviations which were well transcribed despite the complex nature of them. I would recommend Emma to anyone who hopes to better unlock their family history!

16C Will & Inventory

Emma's transcription of the 16C Will of a former resident of our house was first class, combining scholarship with speed. the comprehensive footnotes were invaluable and we were delighted with the result - all-in-all an exemplary service that we would thoroughly recommend.

Keeping in touch with the family

Emma has produced two excellent transcriptions of wills for me dating from 1579 & 1598.
The attention to detail and the additional notes she adds also gave me a greater insight into life over 400 years ago.
The best part of this exercise was finding out the names of some of my ancestors she found within the text
I would highly recommend Emma for any work that you need doing regarding the transcription of historical documents.
The fees that she charges are very reasonable

Excellent Service

Emma was able to transcribe a very blotched will dated 1670 for me. She completed it very quickly and was able to add some extra helpful information. Well worth the price that she charged. I would commend her to anyone requiring this type of service

I needed to have my 2nd great-grandfather’s deed from 1892 transcribed. It was difficult to figure out how to do so successfully. I tried an online AI-type service with very poor results.

But I’m so glad I found Historical Document Transcription Services by continuing my Google search. Working with Emma was a great experience! She is a skilled and trained professional.

Emma was straightforward from the start with her pricing and let me know what to expect throughout the process.

The project was completed quickly and efficiently. A bonus is that her services were very affordable.

I'm ecstatic to have this historical link to my family. Her work went above and beyond my expectations. I couldn’t be more pleased with the final product. I would highly recommend her services!!!!!

19th Century Testimony

Emma transcribed the testimony written in the 19th century for me. I greatly appreciate her excellent work. I wanted to know what the residents said about an incident then and was struggling to read many parts of the testimony. With her great help, I now have a much better understanding of what they said. I find it very helpful for my research!

PRO Late Medieval C documents

Emma has been extremely kind and speedy in helping me decipher the very complicated secretary hand used by clerks and other bureaucratic minds during the late 15th century. The complicated nature of the language did not deter her and she came out with incredible results! Like a previous reviewer said, the duration was far less than anticipated! I also would not hesitate to contact her again!

1617 indenture

Emma transcribed this for me in good time, with great care for the original flavour of the text and for any parts that were unreadable. She was able to correct my imperfect understanding of the writing, including the date, a useful and successful transcription - important to me, as this seems to be the only document in existence recording the marriage of two direct ancestors.
