Tips for using this page:  

This web site can be viewed using the following addresses:  www.elizabethmarineways.com  OR   www.Tinyurl.com/cfqazd   OR  http://freepages.history.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~jmohney/index.htm    

 

1) Browser such as Google Chrome, Firefox, and Safari may not allow the captions I have inserted on most photos to be seen when you place your mouse pointer / cursor onto the photos. Chrome does have an extension, "Visible Alts" that if downloaded will show the photos captions and I advice downloading this extension if using Chrome. This web site was designed using an early version of Front Page and Internet Explorer so if using Internet Explorer and you are not able to view the captions inserted on photos I would recommend that you turn on the "Compability" function probably listed under "Page Settings" on the Menu Bar. 

2)  The Font used on the actual journal pages of this site is "Brush Script MT".  This font gives the appearance of being handwritten, which I feel is appropriate for the  content of these pages which is a handwritten journal.  If you are not seeing these pages in handwriting but in traditional block lettering it may mean one of the following: a) Your computer does not have Brush Script MT loaded as one of its fonts. b) Your computer may need to be restarted to clear its memory to allow it to view fonts other than the default font. c) Your computer may need more memory in order to view this font along with other programs you are running simultaneously. You might find the handwritten font to be more difficult to read, in this case you could remove Brush Script MT from your computer and then the web site would be seen in the default font of your computer, probably a traditional block style font.

 
3) This site relies heavily on graphic files, each of the journal page is a separate jpeg file.  Please be patient while each page loads, the faster your connection the quicker the page will load.


4) To navigate the journal pages faster you may want to use the Master Directory. The Master Directory gives all Journal Directories, with the details, on one page.  Use the Journal Directory pages if you know the time period of a particular event you are looking for.
