    I would suggest to our British friends that the log books of the Royal
    Navy prior to the days of steam should be digitized, and likewise those
    of the U.S. Navy, and others.  But the British ones would be the major
    treasure trove, in my opinion, due to their sheer volume.  I put the
    cutoff date at steam to avoid revealing any classified information, but
    one probably could advance the cutoff date to the advent of nuclear
    fuel without revealing any critical information!
    One other suggestion would be to convert the images to text if
    possible, that they might be searchable.
