Updating PDF Indexes

by @ 4:50 pm. Filed under Registry Ops

As users and employees identify problem pages with the pre-1976 indexes - those now available as PDF files within the registry - we are updating the files while keeping a copy of the original file and a log of when the file was changed and how. For example, in the 1941-1950 Grantor Index for the letter “M”, what appears in the PDF as page 4 is a copy of page 5. To fix this issue, we rescanned page 4 to obtain the correct image and then replaced the duplicate of page 5 with the true image of page 4. In another case - 1966-1975 Grantor letter “L” - page 1187 appeared in its regular spot and also in place of page 1167. Following the same procedure, we rescanned page 1167 and then inserted it in the PDF in place of the incorrect version of page 1167. Changes of this nature will be made on a continuous basis as issues are identified, and all steps taken in the correction process are fully document.
