What can a graphoanalyst (a handwriting expert) tell a genealogist about his or her ancestors? Actually, quite a lot.
Graphoanalysis is defined as "a scientific system of identifying and assessing the character and personality of an individual through the study of his or her handwriting." Graphoanalysis is used by corporate personnel departments, marriage counselors, attorneys, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and now by genealogists.
I recently had a chance to interview Master Graphoanalyst Irene Lambert for RootsTelevision. Irene described how she can analyze handwriting in order to learn about the personalities of your ancestors.
