What is the paleography

     It is the science of deciphering, reading and interpretation of the ancient writings. Like writing changes at the same rhythm as evolution of our language, some old texts of two, three hundred years and more can appear difficult to us to read compared to today. There is courses of paleography offered by certain genealogical societies to cure this problem.

     There is, among others, Mr. Roland de Tarragon who suggests you on his website Lire les Écritures Anciennes free exercises of paleography.
