Letting Others Know When You Modify an Image

There were two references to the death of Joseph Neill in a November 1906 issue of the Quincy Daily Herald, published in Quincy, Illinois.  One item referenced the accident in which he was killed and the second reference was to his wife’s parents going to the town where Joseph and his wife were living. slected-parts-image

I did not want to save the entire image of the newspaper. I did want to use the key elements from the newspaper in the image, including the heading which indicted the locals column in which the references appeared. The image I create from the newspaper needs to have an indication on it that the image is a modified one from the original newspaper. This allows anyone viewing the image to know that portions of the locals column in which these items appear have been left out.

Others may choose not to modify the image from the original. For that choose to, commentary to that import needs to be included in the image.

    Most times I don’t want the whole page of the paper, I want that information referring to the person in my genealogy. I try hard to get all the necessary information, about the paper to be able to get back to it.

    Thanks for your comments and hard work.

  2. I have evolved to the point of saving 2 files from the newspaper: the entire page, and the “clipped” article of interest. The former is useful if I need to check the citation or check context, but I keep it in a separate folder for that individual on my hard drive, and generally don’t add it to the tree. The article goes both to the hard drive folder, and to the tree as a cited source.
