Last week found us playing with a new toy. A borrowed toy, but still new to us! It is a Fujitsu SV600 Overhead Book Scanner. The scanner allows us to scan material hands-free. It recognizes when the book page has been turned, can snip images apart, and removes any fingers that may have been scanned. With the OCR capabilities – indexing will be a breeze and it turns jpeg and pdf files to searchable records!
We have plans to scan one-of-a-kind township records, funeral home records, delicate yearbooks, archived newspapers, and possibly take it to the courthouse/churches to acquire more records for you to research.
Thank you, Bill for allowing us this test drive!
