How are you wanting to use these scanned documents? 
What format have you used for these scanned documents? Are they scanned as a 
graphic or are they in PDF format or a combination of formats? 
Are you wanting to combine all of the documents pertaining to each individual 
into a single file, with the first page being, for instance, a printout 
something like the Legacy Individual Report or a Family group sheet might 
provide? If so, would this be geared toward a printed hard copy or something 
that could be shared electronically?
Congratulations on locating, scanning and linking this material to individuals 
in your database. I like to save items like this, too.

Subject: [LegacyUG] Documents
I've been doing genealogy for over 35 years, having gathered a vast number of 
documents - birth/death/marriage certificates and licenses, obituaries, wills, 
probate info, newspaper articles etc -  some original, other's secondary.
I computerized back in the dark ages of personal computer technology (early 
70's) with an IBM PC Jr and a floppy disk, two if you could afford it! Thus, NO 
availability of storing anything on the computer. As technology advanced and 
scanners became available I scanned everything I had collected to new computers 
with ample HD's as well as adding new scanned information.
I was a late comer to LEGACY having used 3-4 other software products that went 
out of business over the years forcing me to upgrade to newer products. My last 
upgrade a few years back was to Legacy (v7.0) and I love it having kept updates 
to the present V9.0.
My problem, question?? 

I have several thousand scanned documents stored on my HD that I have linked to 
individuals in my Legacy database. Is there any way of preparing an output 
document that would show the individual AND any/all supporting documents 
gathered over decades of collecting? I'm not inclined at this stage of life to 
even attempt transcribing this supporting information in to any templates 
available in Legacy!
Suggestions are welcome.
