Chapters that are marked scanned means that they have been scanned at very high resolution and run through a good OCR (Optical Character Recognition) program  to produce machine transcriptions.  The quality of these OCR transcriptions is quite good compared to the usual output from scaning and OCR, but they do include some errors, so they have to be proof-read and corrected by a person.

We'll be continuing to proof and correct these scans and make them available on-line over the next few weeks.  If anybody is interested in volunteering to help in proof-reading and correcting these scans, please write to Gene Shirey (  (If you want to know more about the quality of these OCR scans to get a better idea of the amount of work for which you'd be volunteering, please feel free to take a look at the uncorrected machine transcription for Sligo Borough.)
