Genealogy ~ Learning French on FamilySearch

Yet another of my ancestral lines has extended to France.  Images of written records that include them are now online, but I struggle to learn to read French.  It shouldn’t be a problem.  I didn’t have this much grief learning to read other languages.  What is the solution to my problem?

The answer is simple and just requires some uninterrupted time and effort on my part.   A quick search on the FamilySearch Wiki resulted in their excellent online text and video training on reading French Handwriting.

If you haven’t thought to look for training in the language of your ancestors, see if it is available on FamilySearch Wiki.  You may find the exact tools you need to make your research efforts successful.
