Crop the item to fit the frame – 1904 marriage – Canada

Crop the item to fit the frame.

In past blog postings I said that cropping a long column newspaper item is sometimes better for a family tree. I found a very good example of this in the 1904 marriage item.

Copy of marriage - Ramsay 2 Mallandaine Aug 1904 - Canada

I put both versions on the tree, long version in the groom box and the cropped version in the bride box. As you can see one is easier to read than the other but both have the same information in their description.

Retired General Motors designer who now works on subjects dealing with genealogy. I create trees using items I find in old Google News Archive newspapers and I contact other tree owners notifying them about the news item concerning their relative and send them a link to the tree I created. I post a screen print of the news item on the tree for others to copy, so that my work will benefit others. Occasionally, I will post about the tree I created or the item that I found, always with a "how to" in-bedded in the post. I want my blog posts to help others with their family trees or with their genealogy experiences.
