Enlarging a Newspaper Clipping

Sometimes, when newspaper clippings are shared on Facebook, they are hard to read or the bottom part isn't visible. Here's what I try to remember when this happens.

Downloading the image gives me more control. I can open the image with IrfanView. This "free" program has an option that allows me to, gain control of, and enlarge, the image. Almost every time this allows me to make the text large enough for easy reading. My goal is to be able to type the article in order to include the text in the Note field of my genealogy file.

Tennant Genealogy

I did a test run to see how many pages of information I have about the Tennant family.

The information is stored in one of my RootsMagic files.

A narrative descendant report includes an every name index and a place name index.

In general, my policy is to exchange information only with people who have done substantial work on recording their own genealogy and who are willing to share.

The current page count for the Tennant family is - 1571 pages.

Henthorn Family Wiki Shutdown on 31 Jul 2018

My Henthorn Family Wiki will be shutdown on 31 July 2018. The company where I had this paid subscription is going out of business.

If there is something there that you want Download Now. I am not sure I want to build another set of webpages.

Glesenkamp, Conger, Schumacher

I just discovered any interesting link on Find A Grave. Mary Glesenkamp, daughter of William Wilson Glesenkamp and Eliza Melissa Taylor, married John Ambrose Schumacher. Mary had a sister, Ruth Glesenkamp, who married James Abraham Conger.

John and Mary Schumacher lived in Woodsfield, Monroe Co., OH.

James and Ruth Conger lived in Delaware, Delaware Co., OH.

Several years ago I worked on the Conger family in general. In my Conger file I have information about James and Ruth Conger. Some of my Conger work is available online, hosted by a Conger friend.

Right now I am working on the Schumacher family of Woodsfield, Monroe Co., OH and Allegheny Co., PA. Does anyone have a summary style descendant list for the Schumacher family?

RootsWeb Update

Here's a link to a July 2018 update on the status of the Rootsweb restoration project.

This is very good news.

I've already looked at some of the restored pages. I think those of us who used this resource are going to appreciate what a valuable asset we weren't able to access for several months.
