Finding Aid and Transcription Links The following links open very large PDF files (about 120 MB, 400 pages each). The Optical Character Recognition, which makes them searchable using CTRL-F, is currently very basic with a number of spelling errors. An ongoing project with the Bruce County Genealogical Society is working to improve the text recognition and search function.
