I'm trying to research this postcard I found. It's postmarked in 1937 with a Yugoslavian stamp. The writing is in cursive (not printed). Looking for someone who can translate it to English approx 3 sentences. If you can do this please send me a message.

Thank you

Both the Latin and Cyrillic alphabets were used in the former Yugoslavia, so you might want to specify which cursive alphabet.

Bookbndrbob,

How can I tell the difference between those two? It just looks like cursive to me, just not in English.

Could you post a picture? That might help a bit,

Peter

With Cyrillic cursive, the differences in alphabets is most noticeable with capital letters, as the Serbian snippet in Serbo-Croatian below shows. You can clearly see capital letters that don't exist in the Latin alphabet. Serbians, some Bosnians, and Montenegrans use the Cyrillic alphabet. Croatians and Slovenians do not.

As Peter said, if you post a picture you might get help. If you don't, your chances lessen.

Sorry, I can't tell. There's just two or three capital letters,
