Lynah family history

I scanned the thirty-eight year old text with a ScanMaker 6700 and used OmniPage to convert the scans into editable text. The conversion process is somewhat crude and does not accurately recognize all the typed letters. So I used Notepad, StarOffice, and error-prone comparisons to create text documents for each original page, then copied and pasted that text into NetObjects Fusion.
I left almost all typographical errors in place, as in the original document. This is intended to convey the experience of the typed and mimeographed documents.
Finally, where applicable, I created tables to approximate the tabbed typewritten layouts.
