Over to Readers Found. :)

I am having visitors for the holiday weekend. I may not be checking in every day. I will catch up after. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Cheers!
Amy

Hello, I wasn't sure how to check the volume of the recording in dBs but I made sure the recording was between 0.5 and 1 this time.

Please let me know if this works.

I use the librivox Checker tool to check technical specs. Here is the wiki and link;

Anthony,

As you are getting closer to cataloguing this book, it might be worth trying to find more about C J Tibbits (and fix his name in the first post, summary, filenames, etc.)

I searched on the web a bit and came across this page: https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Page:Oxford_men_and_their_colleges.djvu/849

It lists "Tibbits, Charles John" as born in 1861. Perhaps somebody with access to Oxford university records could dig more about him. I wonder if he's the same Charles John Tibbits who collected and published fairy tales. The page lists him as coming from "Albion house school, Chester", and if I interpret the text correctly, graduating from Oxford in 1886 with a B.A. degree.

"UK BMD Summary" has that same person listed as born in 1861 (see here).

Another site, "findmypast.com" shows that Charles John Tibbits born in 1861 died in 1935 (see here).

Could this all be of any use?

I will defer to Amy on this.

Hi Anthony and Tovarish,
This is helpful. I will update his information. I can update the file names for Tibbits when the project is being cataloged.
Thanks,
Amy

Thank you for the tool. I used it to check my recording and it passed at 90.4 db.

Hope this version works.
