As tiffs are full resolution files, I have always had the best luck doing anything with an image using at least 300 dpi tiff scans. Note in my example, the tiff version is more than twice the size of the jpeg. The finer the detail on the image helps OCR software do its job.
The jpeg versdion is fine for us to read but I’d use the tiff version for an OCR.
PS Merry Christmas to all!

So I will attempt the OCR "assignment".
I will say that I was able to OCR the first jpeg (not TIFF) image in a matter of 20 seconds just by opening the image up in Google Documents. It created a document with 2 pages - one with the image and second with the text. I had to fix 2 letters because they were not crisp enough in the image. Not exactly what I had in mind... I was hoping for a searchable PDF, but I will see what else I can do with what you gave us and throw it in my Google Drive to provide back to you to distribute back out to everyone. Maybe I convert the image to PDF and then see if OCR will work on that.
