  • Has your handwriting changed over time?
  • Perhaps include some samples of younger generations?
  • In this digital age our descendants will marvel at our handwriting for very different reasons when compared to us marveling at our ancestors’ handwriting. We take for granted that we can probably write. That in the past was not a given right.
