I bet that thin orange colored sheet was invented by a genealogist ! :-)

It's been a few years but I thought I remembered seeing something like that
being used at a library that I visited, but couldn't remember for sure,
anything is worth giving a try if it would help to read some of the older
census better.

Wonder if it would work on the computer screen as well, there are a few you
can pull up now on some sites that are the original microfilmed pages?
