A Digitization Wish on Fold3 and Other Sites

I don't normally post blog updates that are short, but...
Who knows what was in this
envelope returned to the
Pension Office?

Using the images of War of 1812 pension files at  Fold3 would be easier if there were some type of notation as to what image "front" goes with what image "back." Sometimes one can tell (because of worn edges in the pages or holes that can be matched up, etc.) but other times it is extremely difficult to pair pages up correctly. Analysis is hindered when this matching cannot be done.

And letters that were taken out of envelope? No idea there either.

Guessing is not good.
