entire image blured
I have this entire image blured record and I was wondering what do I need to do to make it readable so that I can index it. US, New York, Niagara—Indexes to Mortgagees, 1630–1975 [Part A][M3BN-PK9]
I have tried everything that I know of and nothing seems to help.

I'm looking at it. It appears to be isolated to that image - probably someone bumped the camera while taking that picture: Here in the images below you'll see the batch image (bordered in red) surrounded by reference image -1 and +1.
I'm trying various techniques, but don't expect great improvement. You may just need to return it. I'll let the moderators decide whether it should be labeled NED. I'll post the progress below.
Here are the results of my experiments. I'm not thrilled with them, but here they are. I padded the original image to allow the operators to retain full width when they get to the boundaries of the image. In the middle is the original (padded). On the left is the result of applying the BlurFix program with a 33x33 pixel operator. On the right is the result of applying the Smart Deblur program with a 33x33 pixel operator.
What is going on with image moderation?? I see (at least on my iPad this early morning) that for the second time on this same post I have blue screens in place of my posted comparison images. There was nothing offensive or controversial in my images of blurry mortgage indexes. What a waste of hours of my time and energy. I saw the same phenomenon a few hours after initially responding (within the 4-hour edit window), so I recreated and reposted the comparison images last evening. But here we are again. I hope the originals are eventually posted/released. I’m not making another attempt. And I apologize to anyone trying to make sense of it.0
