Reading Poor Copies of Documents

Reading dark documents? Having trouble transcribing them because they or their copy is either "muddy", the ink has bled through, or the writing is faint? Use a black light.

If you can get a Xerox copy, use yellow high-lighter on the problem letters/words and then use a black light; highlighting the word helps the black light to work even better. Do not do highlight an original, just use the black light on it.

This works on over 90% of all copies, I can't say the percentage of documents. I haven't had the luxury of handling originals, beyond newer vital records. With the use of a black light ($10.00 from a company who sells through Amazon), my eyestrain is over.
