Would anyone be able to translate a letter written in old German script?
The letter, which is over 100 years old is written in the old German script. It is about a three page letter. Could anyone translate it for me?
You could join the German group here https://community.familysearch.org/en/categories/gp-groups?route=research-groups and ask your question.
There are experienced research groups that may be able to help you.
You will need to have a good scan of the document preferably in jpg format at this point we cannot upload a PDF in communities, but that may change in the future. So one you have the document ready then chose add image second icon at the bottom left (upload image)
Please add inforamtion that you would like clarification on eg; What you can make out and you could also use Google Translate as well as other translation programs.
All the best0

As has already been suggested, one or more of the 'Groups' in the "Groups" Section; specifically, relating to "German", would be the way yo go.
Where the members of those 'Groups' are willing to help/assist as, required; and, able.
These 'Groups" are "Public"; and, one just needs to "Join", to ask, a question; or, for for some help/assistance.
For starters ...
Here are a few of such those 'Groups':

German language website but currently closed until the beginning of September due to the summer break.0
