Family History

by Robert Monroe Fleming (Sr.)

The end is near!

No, not the end of the world, but the end of this transcription project. There are 123 pages in my father’s manuscript, and as of January 3rd I am on page 119. I am hoping (but not promising) that I will be done by mid-January.

This history is transcribed into web pages from a manuscript by Robert Monroe Fleming, my father. The manuscript is dated 15, January 1975. It is typewritten and bound on the left by three brass prong fasterners. I have copied it almost like it is. I tried not to correct spelling, punctuation, or grammatical errors in order to keep the transcription as accurate as possible.

One notable exception is in using the digit (number) one. Typewriters in the 1970s usually did not have a key for number one, just two through zero. The typist was expected to use a small letter “l” (small L) for a one, as in l94l. My Father, not a skilled typist, used the capital letter “I”, as in I94I, which looks a little odd. Since I am using a computer, I am going to use the actual number “1” (one) as in 1941.

The use of I for one also creates a problem in situations such as “Part II.” Is that Part eleven or Part two, with Roman numerals?

In transcribing the manuscript for use on the Internet, I encountered some technical problems in the manuscript that slowed my transcription, and in some cases preventing me from transcribing portions. Click here for details.

Although I believe that in general the manuscript in fairly accurate, I noticed various things that may indicate that there are errors. Please click here for my comments.

I am hoping that a future project will be to put an exact copy on the Internet, by scanning all the pages into either .gif or .pdf format.

Updated on September 8, 2009: I am now planning to first complete the current project as explained above (transcribe my Father’s manuscript as accurately as possible, including all errors as is, except the digit one. After that I now plan to edit the manuscript, mostly by correcting errors in spelling, spacing, punctuation, some grammar, etc. to make it more readable. I may also delete passages that have little or nothing to do with geneology. The transcription will still be available for reference. The edited version will be in addition to, not instead of, this transcribed version.

I also plan to go though the manuscript and try to work out relationships between people, i.e., the actual geneology. I will also do some checking on the Internet to try to work out more information about the geneology and to verify how factual some of the information is.
