Archive Digitalization

The    Archive    digitalization    is    the    first    step    for    a serious   analysis   of   the   Paul   Mauser   documents. All   the   documents   are   sorted   by   year   and   then   by type   (diary,   letters,   notes,   telegrams...).   For      each     year      a      folder      is      defined.      Inside      it,      several     folders        are        associated        for        each        type        of      document.            Each      folder            contains            the        scan/picture      of      the      document      with      the      related     translation.      After      this      classification,      the   analysis and   interpretation   of   the   documents   start.   All      the     undated      document      are      stored      in      the      same     folder.      For      some         of         them         a         tentative         of        dating         could         be      done         based         on         the        content.         If         the         content         interpretation         is        accepted         then         the         document         is         moved         in        the  related year folder.
