The Moravian Archives in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania will offer a German Script Course, to be held June 4 through June 15, 2007. This intensive course on learning to read German script is now in its 37th year and is the only course of its kind in the country.
Former participants include more than 350 college professors, graduate students, genealogists, curators, archivists and hobbyists from various backgrounds. They represent such academic fields as history and German, American studies, musicology, religion, anthropology, art history, sociology, genealogy, technology and other subjects.
After two weeks of intensive studying, practicing and reading participants will be able to read German manuscripts dating from the 17th through the early 20th centuries. The course has now been completely redeveloped and includes many new texts and new study methods .
