The latest on real estate recordings and new technology from the Middlesex North Registry of Deeds in Lowell
As the summer winds down so does our pool of interns. We started June with five (four college and one from the Lowell Career Center) and on Monday we’ll be down to one. In the end these interns scanned over 1400 books for us (great job). But I must admit I was hoping to complete around 1600. In my enthusiasm I did not anticipate certain problems we encountered. As I mentioned in earlier posts, record books with grey scale pages caused the biggest problems. Interestingly enough, we run two types of scanners here at the registry…Kodak 2025 and Fujitsu 5650C. The Fujitsu’s are newer, but less much expensive than the Kodaks. Our Kodaks are higher quality machines that handle grey scale pages without a problem. On our Fujitsu’s the density needs to be changed on the Fujitsu. Unfortunately, we only own two Kodaks. We use one for the Record Book Re-scan Project and the other is being used to scan old Registered Land certificates. Good news…in about a month we are going to suspend the Registered Land project for a few months and retrofit the Kodak for use in the Record Book Re-scan Project. This decision was made not based on importance, but on organizational planning.
