Those earliest tomes are no longer available for public scrutiny but stored in a climate controlled sealed vault belonging to the State Records Office instead of the County. My work involved reproducing them on microfilm back then while the writing was still legible enough to do so because already many of them were nearly too faint to read anymore. These days I suppose they could be reproduced digitally instead of photographic for better quality, as that would allow enhancement of the lettering better. It was interesting work at the time. I worked for a photographic studio that did restoration of old family tin type photos taken before that which was even more interesting though. I was really surprised to find John Greaves works published online recently in such rare quality form. Brought back those old memories of my previous work.
