Today’s Tip is about my new best friend, the Carson Optical MR-25 MagniRead Bar Magnifier

I thought I wanted one of those magnifiers that enlarges an entire printed page, but this bar magnifier gave me better results. 

Good news: I was fortunate enough to receive some handwritten records that a great-great uncle in South Africa compiled. Bad news: this man had the tiniest handwriting in the history of paper + ink. Do yourself a favor if you haven’t already and get a bar magnifier. Your eyes will thank you!
