Registers & Personnel Records

Registers & Personnel Records

TownsWeb Archiving’s digitisation technicians have a wealth of experience in the digitisation of registers and personnel records.

These are often too valuable or fragile to be unbound for scanning conversion, so our specialised overhead scanning equipment captures the entire page while sophisticated software provides curvature correction on all pages.

Digitisation not only protects material from loss or damage, but also makes the records more accessible through handwritten transcription. Our team can transcribe those all important details in order to make the content fully searchable, transcribing into fields such as forename, surname, date of birth, date of death and location, for example.

Digitisation Frequently Asked Questions

We use bespoke large-format, high-resolution equipment for planetary scanning, and have a range of high-resolution cameras offering non-contact capture of your precious material.

Our equipment can capture single page or double-page spreads creating output formats in TIFF, JPEG (JPEG2000), PDF (PDFA), or any other industry-standard image format you may require. We can also create further surrogate files, such as MS Excel Spreadsheets, OCR’d multi-page PDFs, MS Word and eBooks.

All files are captured by our highly trained digitisation technicians using overhead, daylight balanced, non-heat producing lighting before undergoing a formal quality assurance checking procedure. The final step in the process is the delivery of your electronic files by hard drive.
