making electronic data from old book

dwcronin asked
Last Modified: 2015-08-06
I have an old cemetery book that I'm trying to get data from.  I am including one page from the book to show you.  The 100 files are named:  'book 3-001' - 'book 3-100'
I would like to make an Open Office spreadsheet out of them so the data won't be lost.  I am currently copying the data from the book to an OO spreadsheet I made by hand. I scanned the sheets yesterday in two hours.    Is there any way to automate getting this data?  There are 3 more books and I'm only halfway through one book.
