        ive got a question that fits in here.  hopefully.

        last week  I found a book from 1901 that google had scanned and listed
        as a pdf file.  it was text plus photos of the rich/famous of the 
        1800s.  somehow, google found the exact string that matched my great
        grandfather [from the civil war].  I d'loaded the file (maybe 2mbytes)
        and searched using acroread.  nada.  I used the pdftotext utility.
        same: nothing but  some 600 page numbers.

        my guess is that google just took photos of the book and used other
        tools to create a pdf file.  I am not =that= serious  about genealogy,
        but I would like to know if there are any tools to edit this kind of
        pdf file.

        tia guys,
