Need help deciphering handwriting
Hi all - I am new to this group and so may not have posted this in the right place - if so my apologies
I am trying to find the place where my 2GGF was born in Germany from the 1871 England Census. The transcription of Meleshore is I believe wrong
The document is https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VFDH-9P3
And this is the offending text!
Looking at the doc as a whole the first letter is most likely and M and the writer normally dots i's so it looks like it starts Mele..... possibly Meleth but I cannot find any German towns/villages starting thus
Are there any experts here are reading old English scrawl??
