March, 2015 Magazine – Design Wednesday, Mar 4 2015 

If you project is over 600 MB in size, we suggest looking toward DVD, as storage varies from about four and a half gigabytes to just under 18 GB – regardless of file type. If the book contains strong video components, DVD also lends itself well as it can be configured to be played on a home entertainment system rather than a computer. Some large book projects may be better suited to USB or memory cards – depending on your audience.

The objective of this work was to identify any and all of the early land patents that were located (partially or completely) within present-day Madison County, Kentucky and to prepare an alphabetical index of these patents arranged by the name of each grantee. The patent database from which the Madison County patents were to be identified was the Virginia Series and Old Kentucky Series of patents for the State of Kentucky that are housed at the Kentucky Secretary of State Land Office in Frankfort, Kentucky. Confirmation that a patent was located within Madison County (completely or partially) was to be established by creating a series of maps depicting the approximate location of each patent within the county.
