Initiation of project…

I spent yesterday scanning the booklet and beginning to OCR the text, all all of today finishing OCR, extracting photos and headline text I wanted to display as images, setting up the website and putting all the information in to create a solid stable and complete beginning of a website.

I keep finding typographical errors (such as the many hyphens that appear in the print version that aren’t needed in a web version), and there is more formatting to take care of, but I’m satisfied that all the information from “Sketches” is now present on the site and looks decent.

If you haven’t figured it out, to view the whole book, you click on the “Pictures and Sketches” link above, and then at the bottom of each page there is a link to the next. There is no overall site map at the moment where you can click on any page.

I’m not sure the blog area will be used much, but I’m leaving it functional for the time being.

I’m not sure what other information I will provide on the site, my main goal is to make the booklet available, though I’ve considered going through and hyperlinking names and other items to relevant off-site information, but that may be a large project for another weekend.

If you are a family member and have genealogical resources, send me an e-mail and I will post the information here. If there is an essay, extract, or article pertaining to one of the family members listed in “Pictures and Sketches of My Son” I may post that here as well.
