Christmas comes early!

One of the greatest treasures of the Historical Society of Montgomery County is our extensive microfilm collection.  Tax records, deed indexes, newspapers, and much more can be found on our over 1000 reels of microfilm.

Our microfilm cabinets

We now have a brand new ScanPro 2000 to view them on (thanks to an anonymous donor).  If you’ve used our old machines (which are still available), you’ll be amazed by our new one.

The new scanner

The ScanPro converts the microfilm into a digital image, which can be adjusted on the screen before printing or saving the image.

The sharp image and easy-to-use interface

The images are much easier to read, and negative films can viewed as positives.  There’s a tool for spot editing, and users can copy and paste text.  You can even search the screen for a word!
