Has everyone lost interest in the original purpose because of the length of time involved?
Well, I know I haven't lost interest nor has Xtraeme stopped working on the technique mentioned at the top of Page 19. I mentioned in
that post my reluctance to post too much detail about Xtraeme's
(considerable!) efforts, since the relevant story is really one for Xtraeme to tell (and get the credit for).
As a taster (and, hopefully, a resource that will also be useful to some of you), I have temporarily uploaded the Project Blue Book index pages for
each year from 1947 to 1969 to the link below:
That link includes both of the two sets of documents at the longer-term links below.
The first link contains relatively high resolution redacted versions (sourced from Fold3 website, following a considerable amount of work by "Xtraeme"
of ATS to enable that huge collection of Project Blue Book documents to be stored on a local hard-drive).
The second link contains lower quality unredacted copies of index pages (showing relevant names) sourced from the bluebookarchive.org website and
enhanced/resized following valuable assistance from Russian researcher Mikhail Gershtein.
Each set of index pages can either be downloaded individually or (by clicking on the download button on the top right of the relevant screen) you can
download each entire collection.
Redacted high resolution :
Unredacted low resolution:
For example (the same page as above, but without those annoying black bits in the copies in the National Archives scans on the Fold3 website...):
Due to the quality of microfilm images/scans being used, the images are far from perfect and the searchable nature of the PDFs is limited - but I
nonetheless find the results useful.
As this 30 month long project draws to a close, I started generating searchable PDFs of the US Air Force's other "Project Blue Book" UFO files.
While not posting here about his efforts very often, "Xtraeme" is still doing some related work.
That sort of quiet persistence is, unfortunately, pretty rare in UFO research.
