	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,
