Do You Back Out of FamilySearch Images?

When viewing digital images of microfilm, make certain you are seeing everything–not just what you’ve zoomed in on. When some local records were filmed, more than one document may have been filmed for one “image,” particularly if the original pieces of paper were small. If you have zoomed in to view something at a higher magnification level and navigated through several images, you may be missing something. I was navigating through images, but because I was zoomed in I was only seeing the top portion of the image and in some cases overlooked the smaller document that made up the bottom of the image.

When navigating to a new image, zoom out to make certain you are not overlooking something.
