Marilyn Rowan has been deciphering old handwriting for over 30 years. She has been an Approved NSW BDM Transcription Agent for the last 22 years, transcribing nearly half a million records over that time. Along the way, she has decoded the many and varied quirks in 19th and 20th century certificates, along with other documents from earlier periods.
