HOW TO SUBMIT INFORMATION FOR YOUR WEB SITE.
IMAGES and PHOTOS:
Images require a great
deal of web space. Keep them to a minimum. You MUST save your image in a
"gif" or "jpg" format and try to reduce your image to
a size of height=200 and width=350. Keep the size of your photo under
50k. Check the size of your photo in windows explorer. To preserve space, your images may
have to be reduced again. Submit your images as a file attachment to
e-mail. If you use AOL, you will have to send images and photos by regular
mail. Include a description of the event depicted and the names of
individuals in the photo. Be sure the people in the photo do not object to
their photo being on the internet.
TEXT and TABLES:
Each software program is
slightly different. Be sure when you copy your file - you copy ALL formats
including paragraph, headers, footers, footnotes, spacing, italics, bold,
etc. If you do not follow the correct copy
procedures, when your file is converted to html for the web site, it will
appear VERY different. Most Microsoft programs will convert to a web page.
Other programs will not.
If you have a listing of names, events, dates, officers, etc.,
place them in a TABLE format in Microsoft Word and send
this as an email attachment.
We can not retype information for
We can not copy
footnotes that do not exist nor formats that are not copied in a correct
fashion. We do not have time to retype and reformat your information.
YOU must enter YOUR new information. Send your
files in Microsoft Word or Excel. If you do not have those
programs, save your text files on your word
processor program, and then save the file in an RTF format. Save
your table or spreadsheet files in the same manner. Send your files in the
RTF format to the webmaster.
If you have questions, send them by email. Table files from excel, etc.
look great, but they take up a large amount of space.
Keep your files BELOW 50k.
If you have long files, divide them into 40k to 50k files and send them.
Example: pages 1-10 = file a; pages 11-20 = file b. We can
link all of your files together with the same topic.
Load times are critical.
Yahoo loads in six seconds at 28.8k. Many do not have ISDN or 56k connect
speeds, and they will NOT wait two to three minutes for a page to load. We
want our pages to load in LESS than 30 seconds. Graphics and animations
may look great, but estimates indicate 90% will not wait to see them on the
page. Many excellent genealogy sites take too long to load and are never
viewed. Websitegarage indicates a 50% loss in viewers for pages that take OVER
20 seconds to load.
Netscape and Explorer give
slightly different views of each web site. We use Explorer. Our
suggestion is to download each browser to view pages. Example: open your file in Netscape
Composer to see how it looks.

reload or refresh to view changes. Phone lines, ISP, server and web
traffic will impact changes on the site.
