Thanks for meeting with us! It was great meeting with the three of you and the project sounds very interesting.

As far as the formats:
The pdf's you sent are pdf's without embedded fonts. I tried converting the files to PDF/A but, could not. If you have Word files of the same documents there might be a chance that a new pdf can be created with embedded fonts.
The jpegs are fine. If you end up scanning some original material that we might not have we would prefer a higher resolution image and preferably in TIFF format.
