Joan, Lois,

There is a better way than using irfanview. All irfanview can do is
make things bigger, but the resolution (dots per inch) will decrease
when you do so. What you want to do is magnify and keep the same
resolution so you can see more detail.

You can do that by using the magnify option on my missing manifest
page. The simplest way to do this is to start with my ship-lists page,
enter Grecian and 1893, then click on the July sailing. That will get
you to my missing manifest page starting at the first frame for that
ship arrival. Specifically it will be frame 258. The manifest that
contains Aron Greif is on frame 259 so you simply have to advance one
frame. Then set magnify to 1.0 and click display. You will now see an
enlarged version of the page with excellent resolution.

If you'd like to post this on the discussion group so that others can
benefit >from it, feel free to do so.
