Birman archive project:
In an effort to compile the tons of Birman Information that is out there Nora and I launched the Birman Archive project. This project through the use of a scanner and conversion of documents to electronic media will collect, compile, sort and publish information on the Birman Community World wide.
We would love to collect copies of your Birman Photographs and Historical documents.
I will scan your archive materials free, and send the original pictures and documents back to you. If you include a blank CD I will send back the scans too! Archive Documents can be included if they are of good quality, I have OCR software available (scan to text) Note: Due to language problems (ours) all documents we get need to be in English (anyone willing to translate?)
If your wondering what I am up to, I would love to
release a Birman CD ROM someday.... But there is a LOT of work between
here and there. Anyway for now I'm settling for filling a lot of zip disk
of data and seeing what I can come up with. Anyone willing to retype those
documents that cannot be scanned? (I am a horrible typist)
Send any information / Pictures to:
Ron & Nora Thayer / Taron
Please include a label on all pictures with: cat name breeder/owner name (if available) and your return address so I can get them back to you. I will return them within a month of receiving them. (unless they contain too much information to sift through in that time in which case I will call you)
* Note: If you have money you do not need and desire to bankroll this project Nora and I would be happy to quit our current jobs and do this full time. (or just buy better equipment in order to do this, if you don't have that much)
