ive got a question that fits in here. hopefully.
last week I found a book from 1901 that google had scanned and listed
as a pdf file. it was text plus photos of the rich/famous of the
1800s. somehow, google found the exact string that matched my great
grandfather [from the civil war]. I d'loaded the file (maybe 2mbytes)
and searched using acroread. nada. I used the pdftotext utility.
same: nothing but some 600 page numbers.
my guess is that google just took photos of the book and used other
tools to create a pdf file. I am not =that= serious about genealogy,
but I would like to know if there are any tools to edit this kind of
