I'm having a problem and would love someone to help me with this. Right now I'm trying to obtain my ancestor's obituaries through and then put them on First I work on a Mac. The obituary comes from newspaper in a pdf file. I then covert it to a jpg file and put it into iPhoto to edit and cut down to just the obit from the newspaper page. The problem is I can't read is such small print. For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to increase the size.
Can someone please help me with my limited knowledge of this?

Oops. The link I included in my prior comment went to the Family Finder intro page. It's still a good page to read. But if you want to find today's news release, you need to go to the Family Tree DNA home page.

I was a Beta tester on the Family Finder DNA test from Family Tree DNA. Today I see they opened the test to everyone. The joint press release they issued with their chip supplier has some interesting details. See this page then click on the 05/03/10 release under Family Tree DNA News.
