    Most of them are in pdf format. I found a copy machine that let me reduce all of these records that I need down to 50% and that did it for me. I'm now able to print them onto my reduced size paper and store them in my 3 ring looseleaf book. I do want to thank you for all your help. I've kept all of our correspondence for future reference. Take care and God Bless.
