We are moving along steadily with the Registered Land back scanning project. You can now access registry documents 58,000 to present both on-line and at the registry. As expected the older documents are in worse condition than the later ones. Obviously, this means more time and manpower is needed for document preparation. To prevent a slow down in production we have re-assigned an employee who will work full time preparing documents for our scanners. To get a document ready to scan means unfolding it, re-writing faded instrument numbers, making copies of colored pages and/or anything else needed that will make the document create a better image. This project is very high on our priority list. The Registered Land microfilm viewers are becoming increasingly unreliable. Even when working properly they are painstakingly slow to use. Many people to say the least will be happy when this project is finished.
