Thanks for the additional info.
Yes, that microfilm was extremely light, and some parts of it was almost like blank paper. I guess the Archives dept. didn't do a very good job at filming that reel, which I understand from others is a common complaint. As a matter of fact, I don't even think that they knew the Register was included on the reel, it was not listed in the inventory of what was supposed to be on it, and it was tacked on at the very end.
I'm hoping to find more goodies like that on some of the other microfilmed Court Records, too.
