Now, I scan them, enhance the digital copy with GraphicConverter,
add it to my website, and reference it in a GEDCOM OBJE record.
When worthwhile, a transcript can be part of the OBJE record or
another OBJE or SOUR record.
If it is a SOURce, then citing it on the INDI or FAM record
takes care of the indexing. For some media, I make direct OBJE
links in the INDI / FAM.
SOURce records will use CALN, REPO, and other tags to identify
the paper. No more copying and trying to organize physically.
PhpGedView and webtrees both support this reasonably well.
I'm sure many other programs do, too. Anyone want to name names?
achy breaky grammar
