Tip of the Day for the nearsighted genealogist

Many of us genealogists search for old newspapers on Ancestry.com, Genealogybank.com, NewspaperArchive.com or other sites. It's great that they give a thumbnail view of the article, BUT, if you're like me, you have trouble reading that small type.

Did you know that you can enlarge everything in your browser so it will display larger? It's very easy to do! Just Click on the CTRL button along with the plus sign +

CTRL +

To return to normal, use CTRL and the minus sign

CTRL -

In Internet Explorer, you can achieve the same result by going to your status bar on the bottom of the screen. It usually defaults to 100% display. Click on the down arrow, and you'll have a variety of options to change the display.

Try it! It works! It also helps reduce wrinkles because you don't have to squint all the time!
