Number of photos/documents scanned: 20, comprised of 40 separate scanned images -- several documents were multiple pages in length.

Several letters to and from the siblings and parents of Myrtle Van Every. A handful of photographs.

TV Commentator: Team TransylvanianDutch's post-scan usage of the "Sharpen Edges" filter in his graphics program to darken letters written in pencil was especially impressive. He should consider a post with before and after images.

TransylvanianDutch: hmm. Not a bad idea. Tomorrow maybe? It's getting late.

TV C: Tomorrow will be fine.
