I have the 12 key seed phrase from a 10 year old Bitcoin-qt acct, but don't know what tool to use to turn it into a wallet. Obviously I am terrified to put the seed phrase into any ONLINE tool. I want to practice offline somehow to see if I even wrote it down properly. I tried looking thru the sourcecode: https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin to see there is a word-list.. No joy. One guy said Electrum, but it didn't help decipher the individual words, just kind of a 'put them all in', sink or swim endeavor....
