I have a FREE military sites listing on my webpage.  You can take a look and perhaps find some ancestors:

Hi All I have just been sent a new site from "Brightsolid" in the US it is:

it covers census's ( but not all ) in the US, it is free but registering does help a little better and if you subscribe for a fee it enables you to down load the original document. It is new and in Beta form.

To Daphne Goodman, Yes I can convert the file into Tiff.  I have never done it before so it makes for an excellent idea to try along with the pixel size increase.

I truly appreciate your help.  I'll contact you if it doesn't work for me.

Check out this website if you're looking for help with your War of 1812 ancestor. 

They also have started a database. If you know your ancestor served during the War of 1812(1812-1815) please let them know.

to Patty Wimpsett Killion, I forgot to ask you what photo editing software do you use?  If it isn't Corel or Adobe, you probably won't be able to make the adjustments you need.  If you want, I will do it for you.  Please contact me on my Genealogy Wise page.

to: Patty Wimpsett Killion regarding cropping a news article.  I don't know Mac that well but what you need is the largest size to work from before you crop.  If you can download it into a Tiff file which saves the original file and resolution size that is best. If you cannot do Tiff then, increase the pixels to at least 400-800 pixels  before you save it as a jpeg from the pdf file.  When the entire page is huge then adjust color, fading, brightness, etc for the section you will crop only. Then you are ready to crop.
