INSTRUCTIONS FOR SEARCHES FOR IMAGES OF DOCUMENTS
As we are digitally filming these microfilms, we will have a large selection of
the films on CD with us at the reunion. PLEASE DO NOT ASK FOR A
COMPLETE COPY OF ANY FILM.
Rose Amison and I cannot begin to tell you the amount of hours that have gone
into digitally filming and getting these ready for viewing. For example, it will take me
about 3 evenings at the library to film one film - about 6 hours. Then the index must be
coded to the images to facilitate easy finding of each document to the image which can
take another 8 to 10 hours depending on how many images there are on the film.
A few notes about the filming:
When we film the images, we do not film each half of the frame on the microfilm separately.

All orders for documents will be cropped to one page images
