This scrapbook was created by several unknown members of my family from many newspaper clippings in the area of Spring City, Chester Co., Pennsylvania. It covers that stretch of time from about 1870 to 1910 and views the lives and loves of many of my relatives. I have indexed about 1000 names - but there are more.
For a list of the folks, go to the Index (http://freepages.history.rootsweb.com/~scrapbook/webndx.htm) topic.
There are also links (not indexed) to notes from the STAUFFER - EMERY Family Reunions (http://freepages.history.rootsweb.com/~scrapbook/stauffer_emery_reunion/stauffer_emery_links.html)
For more about the book, its history, and the development of this site,go to Readme (http://freepages.history.rootsweb.com/~scrapbook/readme).
For poems, recipies, cartoons, and interactive misc.stuff, go to Frolicking Through Fun Pages (http://freepages.history.rootsweb.com/~scrapbook/rootsfuntable.htm). Help catalog some fun items and I will credit you in the Funpages chart on this website.
A word about reading the text (at least pertaining to Windows XP/Internet Explorer use), there are 2 sizes: too large and too small. While the pages are being downloaded, they appear so large that I don't even need my bifocals to read them. As soon as a page has finished downloading, it changes to an image so small that you can hardly read the headlines. If you "Mouse over" this image, several icons appear on the screen. On the top left corner are symbols representing print, save, etc. In the bottom right is a square with arrows emanating out from it. Click on this icon and you are back to giant size print. From there, you can navigate around using the scroll bars to find the topic you are researching.
I hope your visit was both enjoyable and beneficial. According to , you are visitor .
