Casares digitalises Historical Archives

CatastrodeEnsenada (Press release) Casares Council is in the process of digitalising its Archives, that include documents dating back to the 16th century. The picture shows a document called Catastro de Ensenada of that period. The process is being done on a Digibook 2000 planner so that the documents don’t get damaged. They are taken in Tiff format, uncompressed, but will later be copied and compressed for reference purposes. All this thanks to a grant from the Junta de Andalucía of €3000.
