New Indexing Application

by @ 7:18 am. Filed under Indexing, Registry Ops

Last Friday, we got our first glimpse of a new application created by ACS, our computer provider. This program will allow us to make the older images that we have previously created and package them in the same way as our most recent images. Specifically, we will take the images from 1950 to 1976 which have previously only been available as single page images retrievable by book and page number and bundle them into multipage document images. For example, if you are now viewing a five page mortgage recorded in 1972, you have to retrieve each page as a separate individual index. In the near future, you will be able to retrieve all five pages of that mortgage at one time. In addition, we will be able to fully index these older documents in a much quicker, more accurate way than ever before. Finally, we will be able to quickly at pre-1950 documents to our system in the same way. This is all operational now: we just have to do the work now. These new images and indexing information will appear first on our in-house public access terminals and eventually will be transferred to our website. For now, if you happen to be at the registry, go to a public access terminal, select the “document” tab, and retrieve book 1000. This was the first book we completed and it will give you a preview of what’s coming in the not to distant future.
