I have a large cache of documents from the Geheimis Staatsarchiv from the mid 19th century. Because my disseration topic regards Hebrew language newspapers published out of East Prussia from the 1850s through the 1870s, I have files at the municipal and regional levels about media as well as files from the censor's office.
After two weeks of sitting with a sample of the handwriting from one file, I find myself in need of some guidence. I am proficient but not fluent in reading German, which may be part of the issue. But the Kurrent script feels very difficult. I am looking for help in the following ways:
1) Any online resources (free or otherwise) that may be of use (video tutorials, for example)
2) Someone with experience in Kurrent Paleography to talk to about specific techniques and questions that I have.
Thank you in advance,
