Hi Everyone,
I hate to have to tell everyone who has been waiting on me to transcribe the 1900 and 1910 census for Carter County. When I first said I would do it, my intentions were noble. After starting the transcribing of 1900, which didn't get very far, I came to realize that the roll of film I purchased wasn't very good. The copy I paid for started getting bad with page six. It was cutoff on the left hand side. Right in the middle of the names. So, I scanned forwarded on the film looking at about the first 50 pages. Out of those 50 pages, five was cutoff, three pages are so out of focus that even the microfilm reader couldn't do anything with it, and several pages were either too light or too dark to read at all.

After finding out how bad the quailty was of the film for 1900, I then checked the 1910 roll. It was hard to believe, but it was even worst than the 1900 roll.

I would like to say I'm sorry not only for failing to do a job, but also for taking so long to let everyone know. I should have viewed the film before saying anything, but I thought the company I purchased the film from was a good company. My mistake. I will not say what company this is in a public forum like this, but if you want to know the name then email me privately.

Again I'm sorry for the let down. I'm researching this county too, and I'm not sure I have found everyone I was looking for. I've decided that I'll work in the county I live in posting records to my County's webpage. I hope this will inspire some of you who live in Carter Co. or where ever you may live, to work on get the county you live in and get those records online.

Thank You for understanding my problem,
Joy Mack
