Archive of the Newsletters of Oertha

Many people toss their newsletters after reading, some keep them. If you've kept any old paper newsletters, PLEASE let me borrow them to scan and return to you! If you're a chronicler and have the original computer files or paste-ups, please send them to me! Let us preserve the History of Oertha and Oerthan Groups!

These archives are whole scans, or text versions with personal information removed.
You can usually find the 'Official" version of current Branch Newsletters in the files section of the groups e-mail list. If you find any phone numbers or addresses I've missed, let me know.

If you're an author or past chronicler, and an article you've written appears in these archives and you don't wish it to be there, contact me and I'll remove it.

Standards: Each newsletter is scanned in using 'read' order, so in most cases no staples are removed. They are scanned in at 150dpi in gray or color as appropriate, cleaned up and repaired if necessary and saved. The personal information like address and phone numbers are removed, and the file reduced to 96dpi and this 'expurgated' version is uploaded. I hope to eventually display covers and provide an index, but that will take a lot of time.
Each newsletter (depending on size, repairs necessary, etc) takes 1/2 to 1 hour to process.
