On February 19, I published an article describing a $1,075 device that converts microfilm to digital images. It should be the perfect device for your local society or museum to computerize their microfilms.
I ended the article by writing, "Has any newsletter reader tried the ST Genie or a similar low-cost device? If so, could you let me know of any successes or failures you have had with it? I'd love to write a follow-on article based on your experiences."
The readers of this newsletter kindly responded. Nineteen comments were posted, including several written by people who have a lot of experience using the ST Genie. There is nothing left for me to write as these people already wrote the follow-on article. You can read their words at http://blog.eogn.com/eastmans_online_genealogy/2008/02/st-genie-conver.html.
