The latest on real estate recordings and new technology from the Middlesex North Registry of Deeds in Lowell
Our college interns arrived on Monday. All are repeaters and nice to have back. We immediately put them to work re-scanning record books. They are working in the area which used to the lower record hall. Three scanners are going all day long. The volume of work actually requires that two people are assigned the task of preparing books for scanning and reassembling them. I am having a little difficulty estimating how many books will be done by summer’s end…Why? The biggest reason is the varying condition of our record books. This means not every book can be scanned in the same way. Some have very light pages that need to be copied then scanned before a good/fair image can be obtained. This of course is time consuming. Then some books are in perfect condition and fly through the scanner. My best guess is the interns can re-scan about 200 hundred record books a week. That means about 2,000 books will be completed by the end of the summer. We intent to keep the re-scan project going even after they leave.
