Re: Indianapolis Recorder newspaper articles

Art and Ron,

You are very welcome and I agree that the Indianapolis Recorder newspaper has a treasure trove of "fill in the gaps" mentions of many African Americans living across Indiana after 1899. I navigate the newspaper issues much the same way that Ron described. I click on a "hit" (hilighted area) to enlarge enough for me to determine if it is the individual or article I want to have, then clipboard it by using the "pen" device in the toolbar. As instructed, I utilize my mouse to draw a border around the portion of the article I want, and after enlarging the clipboard, I print the article. Enlarging the clipboard allows me to review the article before printing. The articles always print in a very clear, enlarged print fashion, and much better looking, Art, than the articles in the Indianapolis Freeman. I found numerous articles in the Freeman, but found many more in the Recorder, possibly due to the greater longevity of the Recorder. Happy hunting Ron and Art!
