Scanning The Jeppesen-Jensen
The present PDF-files are based on scanning of the original pages from Tommy Jensen's
copy of the "Genealogical Book". The book has been dismantled and the individual pages
scanned on a flatbed scanner.
All pages has been scanned twice; once in full colour and once in monochrome. The
genealogical tree in the book is folded, but has been scanned as two single pages. This
is partly due to the limited size of the scanner bed, and partly in order to facilitate
printing on ordinary printers.
The colour scans has been done at 200 dpi (dots per inch) og 24-bit colour depth (equals
approx. 16,7 million colours). Contrast, shadows and colour saturation has been adjusted
individually for each page in order to achieve the best possible balance between readability
and resemblance to the original.
The monochrome scans has been done at 150 dpi. The contrast has been adjusted individually
for each page in order to achieve optimal readability and print quality.
The original pages are rather yellowed and mostly so at the right edge. Furthermore the
quality of the machine typing varies substantially from page to page. This causes a noticeable
variation in contrast, colour saturation and readability between the various pages of the PDF
documents. Well, I've done my best, within the scope of my skills and equipment!
It applies to both versions that almost the entire page area has been included in the scans.
The holes in the left margen has been omitted in most cases. However, as I wanted to include
the original page number on all pages, the holes are more or less visible on some pages, where
the page number has been typed very far to the left.
The individually scanned pages has been assembled into two files, one in colour and one
monochrome, respectively. Please notice that there are slight discrepancies between the
original page numbers and the numbers in the PDF files. This is partly because the
genealogical tree isn't numbered in the original book, and partly because a page '45 a'
has been added between pages 45 and 46 in the original.
Furthermore, the genealogical tree has been scanned as monochrome vector graphics. A file
with the assembled genealogical tree in A3 size and vector format will be available at a
later time. A major advantage of the vector format is the ability to be scaled "infinitely"
without loss of graphics quality.
