Did you ever try FastLogEntry software <https://www.df3cb.com/fle/> <https://www.df3cb.com/fle/> (free)? Easy way from paper log (og qsl cards) to adif file. It would help to have the cards sorted by date. From there you can import into DXKeeper.

+ Fast Log Entry is a fine application, but

1. it provides no error detection and reporting when you log a QSO; if errors are detected when you direct DXKeeper to import the ADIF file generated by Fast Log Entry, you may have to return to the source (a QSL card in this case) to obtain the information needed to correct the error

2. ops who have used both Fast Log Entry and DXKeeper (with "optimize for realtime QSO entry" disabled, and with full use of keyboard shortcuts) report that the rate at which they can enter QSOs is higher with DXKeeper
