Without cursive, who will read our old documents?
This morning my cousin Roderick in England sent me a PDF image of the London marriage certificate of my great-grandparents. In addition to listing the bride and groom, it gives the names of their fathers and the fathers' profesions.
As I looked at the certificate, carefully handwritten in beautiful script, I wondered who will be able to read it, and other handwritten documents, in the future. I don't know why schools have stopped teaching cursive writing, but I think it's going to have serious repercussions.
