New some help - I have Family Tree Maker 16 - and would like to increase
the font size when I create a book - any suggestions
thanks much!!!!

Does anyone know of a way to take a GEDCOM file and save it as a .rtf?  I have a 'tree' in Family Tree Maker, but it's not giving me the option to export as a .rtf, only GEDCOM.   any suggestions?

I have a copy of a photo album given to Susan Briely Clemson in 1858 from her son William Clemson.   It has almost 100 photos in it, many unnamed.  if you have Clemson and/or Briely roots - let me know

Here is a before and after restoration I had done of an old tintype (about 1860s) - it's a rare piece by being a bit larger than a 5x7, most were pocket size.   This was done at Walgreens - I wait for their 'special' on restoration processing.

Here's a link to some old books.  I've found some really neat stuff - love the old cookbooks

Genealogy Book Links
GenealogyBookLinks.com
This is a great online tool! Mollie Lynch of Clarkston, Michigan, is a retired librarian who decided to assist people wishing to find genealogy books. She knew that thousands of American biographies, genealogies and history books have been digitized and made available on the Internet, usually free of charge. However, there was no single resource of "what is available and where." Mollie decided to create that resource.
 
GenealogyBookLinks.com focuses solely on American biographies, genealogies, and history books. However, as the years go by, I expect that we will see similar resources for thousands of other topics, thereby creating  true digital libraries of books of all topics.

I just got the best book about 'Mary Kille Davis', wife of Samuel Davis who helped in the establishment of Salem, Columbiana, Ohio.   So much great background info on her life and their traveling from New Jersey to Pennsylvania then finally into Salem.  Was able to get her family history back to mid 1600's in England.

thanks for allowing me to join.   one ancestor came to Ohio in 1823 from eastern PA, one from CT and helped to settle Salem OH in 1803 and on my mom's side came in from MD after coming from Germany in 1850's (Mahoning & Columbiana Counties).  Names: Mather, Clemson, Davis, Silver, Nagel, Ward, Oswald, plus many more

I had several photos that were so faded, you could hardly see the faces.   I took them into Walgreen's and they did an absolutely fabulous job on restoring them.   They'll issue coupons every once in a while for half off and I watch for those.  I had one of my grandmother when she was a teacher with her class, couldn't see faces or anything, It's so clear now, it's hard to believe that it's the same pic.   I've had over 30 old photos done, even some from tin types.

have you checked out 'Ancestorville.com' - it's a great resource for old pictures that have ended up at Estate Stores and Antique stores.   You can search by surname.
