We are offering the Acrobat Reader PDF files of the Newspapers we have been collecting for our research that is only available on microfilm and not available online anywhere at this time. These will help my fellow history researchers as well as genealogists who would like access to records from Columbia County Florida from the years 1902 to 1970.
Please remember that these pages are the best quality available directly from the microfilm source. Some may be a little out of focus, some were faded when scanned, and most were scanned directly from the bound pages so that the inner edges may be blacked out. Each page is in Acrobat Reader Format and zipped together to save space on our server. There is no guarantee about the quality but we have done the best that we can. We will add more as we complete our research for that year. The pages are numbered and dated inside the zipped folder but there is also no guarantee that the page is the actual number from the original just in the order that it was scanned onto the microfilm. We have tried to weed out the duplicate pages and some of the pages were missing from the original microfilm. We make note on each file how many pages were there for that day.
The proceeds from the sale of these newspapers will help us get our history book of the Hotel Blanche published and enable us to give away copies to the hotel, the local library, people who helped us gather information and materials to put in the book and even the local historic society. The pages are not searchable just scalable. You can make them bigger and the letters and pictures will not distort.
Right now we are only charging $2 per month. We are the ones who went down to the library, copied each file and are offering it to you so that you don’t have to travel to the library here in Lake City, Florida yourself. We may purchase an ADOBE license in the future which will allow us to make each of the pages searchable, combined it into one document and make them a smaller file size but then we would have to charge $5 per month.
Just click on the BUY button below each title and you will be taken directly to the secure servers at PAYPAL to complete your purchase. Paypal will send you an email with the encrypted download link. If there are any problems with your purchase you can always use our CONTACT US form and we will do our best to assist you as quickly as possible.
