This is a blog prompt borrowed from Randy Seaver at Genea-Musings, who credits Geneablogger John Newmark (TransylvanianDutch blog) with starting this blog theme years ago. John offers this definition for ‘amanuensis:’
“A person employed to write what another dictates or to copy what has been written by another.”
(And, let’s be honest, this is probably the only way I’m going to remember to transcribe all my documents, right?)
This is the marriage record for my great grandparents Harold John Crowe and Lucile Frances Stiker.
