Title and variant titles devised by cataloger.
The XML directory contains one zip file per year (for example, 1869_0). The uncompressed folder, once expanded from the zip file, will have a different name that does *not* represent the year. Instead, it will match the 'xxxx' part of the PDF zip files (see below), such as in the PDF directory. Inside the XML folder is a year folder and a sequence number, such as 1869_0. Inside this are article-segmented XML files. It would take some work to reconnect the XML files to the PDF files programmatically. In addtion to the PDF folder below, there are six zip archives at theh top level, alongside the XML and PDF folder. Five of these are duplicates, and one [] is unique and should be moved into the 00010101_99991231 folder. The PDF directory [00010101_99991231] contains one or more zip file per year (for example, 1869_0_xxxx and 1741_1_xxxx). The numbers after the year do *not* refer to the month. Inside these archives are page-segmented PDFs that do not contain OCR (Optical Character Recognition). These are named identically to the files in the XML folder, above.
