Did Agusta Write This Certification?

One of the reasons it is suggested that genealogical documents be transcribed is that things get noticed when materials are transcribed.

In transcribing this item for the next issue of Casefile Clues, I realized that there's a chance it was written by the man who witnessed it--Agusta Newman.


I'm not entirely convinced yet. One difficulty is that the black and white nature of the image hides some clues.

Why do I care?

Agusta Newman is my 4th great-grandfather and having a copy of something written in his hand would be a really neat find.
