Reeves updates

The Reeves memoir project is not dead.  Just seems like it.

I’ve been spending a bit of time lately getting the last of the scanned pages (of the Reeves memoir) into editable text, using an optical character recognition (OCR) program. I’m just using an OCR program that comes as part of Windows Office and it works pretty well.

It’s still somewhat tedious but is getting the job done. There are still a number of transcription errors and some missing words etc. so the document will continue to need work to make it fully ‘postable’.  I hope to have another section or two ready for posting today.

I’ve also made contact with a couple other fellow genealogists, if I can call myself that.  One, Loren D. from Rochester MN, has done a bunch of stuff of the Hoberg/Hogberg side, which is Charles Reeves wife’s maiden name. The other is Fay H. who lives in the Abbotsford BC area. She is also connected through Charles wife’s sister.  Boy does it get convoluted sometimes.

So I will putter away at this, fitting it in around the many other things I want to do.
