Historical and Genealogical Documents
IIMI enjoys a strong reputation for superior quality hand-written data conversion. This reputation stems from our expertise in historical document conversion and our association with the genealogy industry, where most source documents are handwritten.
Our historical data conversion services clients include ProQuest, IBM, the Library of Congress, Havas Interactive (Vivendi Universal Company), Broderbund Software, and the American Genealogical Lending Library, among others.
Genealogical data conversion
IIMI has performed data entry for nine historical U.S. censuses, consisting of more than 280 million names and covering census years 1790 to 1940. We also converted census data for Great Britain from 1841 to 1901. Finally, we digitized many vital records and several non-structured historical documents.
Hand-written data conversion
IIMI maintains a pool of skilled data-entry operators who are proficient in reading both cursive and non-cursive hand-written data. These skills are indispensable in capturing data from any hand-written source, including credit card applications, rebate forms, surveys, etc.
