Ten months later - I had scanned about 3000 pages when the contract on the copier scanner was updated and a new piece of equipment arrived. Unfortunately, I was unable to use the new scanner and a flat bed PlusTek scanner was purchased. What a joy it is. Originally I would scan the pages to a jpg file and then I would run OCR and save as a PDF. Now I am able to scan and the setting enables searchable PDF. It is doing a great job. The only process each day is to name the files. The file name is 1969-05-08News-Journalpage and then the page number. As mentioned before, the paper is filled with great family and social information - jobs, scouts, clubs, military, events, places, you name it - a bit time consuming but what fun.
