Ron Arons:  Handwriting Analysis for Genealogy
Description: During this presentation Ron will discuss the two main uses of handwriting analysis: 1) comparing signatures and handwriting in general to determine whether documents were written by the same person and 2) trying to understand the personality and behavior of a person by looking at the various traits of that person’s handwriting. Note: This presentation does not cover paleography (the analysis of old handwriting).
