So, you get to the courthouse, and you discover the will for which you have been searching! Yes! You have the book open, and you prepare to read the will to hopefully discover more of the family names.

Do you follow with your finger down the page? Do you let your finger rest on the page?

Do you realize that the oil in your skin can potentially damage that will?

Have you ever looked at a record and seen black spots – so many that it is difficult to read the words? That could be from someone letting their finger rest on the paper.

So, be careful that you don’t touch the paper.
