Please note that we are no longer recommending paying to have us print pictures out on photographic paper. This is because the pdf scans from our new microfilm scanner (in my opinion) look just as good as the photographic prints and are included as part of the report. (Pictures printed on photographic paper cost an additional $10.00 a picture.) Take a look for yourself, the right hand column is what the images will look like in the pdf of the report on your computer (sizes vary, and will likely be much larger than the photos posted here). If you want even larger images we can provide a high resolution scan of each imaged nicely cropped as jpg files for $5.00 for the first image and $2.50 for each image thereafter.

Pictured above are good photos from the microfilm, but what about poor ones? Pictured below are examples of poor photos printed out on photographic paper. While only slightly better, the photographic paper allows for better variation in the gray scale/contrast and subtle details can be worked.
