Sorry I can't help re images as I've very recently moved over to Windows 10 with reluctance (still finding my way round) having been using XP (Home Comp) since it's arrival & Vista (Laptop) since it's arrival & have always used Office Publisher for cropping/resizing which I don't have on my Windows 10 (Laptop).

It may be worth putting a request for help on the Technical Board?

Don't think your allowed to post a full certificate.
Here is a how to thread on posting images
https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=130922.0

Don't resize your original, resize a copy.
It may also be necessary to rename the image.

Personally I use Paint to resize etc.
You can't fish on a empty stomach so give the man one or two records so he knows how good it tastes.

I agree with Sinann, cropping preferably, it keeps the format etc. exactly how it was printed as resizing can cause slight problems & not as clear.

"William McCulloch and Agnes/Mary Holmes were married but she retained her maiden name"

How very unusual...how do you know this or what makes you believe this?

"William McCulloch also had a second wife named as Rose Ann or Rossanna Fox. I do not know very much about her ancestry other than her parent's may be James/Peter Fox and Jane McKee/McKie"

"There is a problem with the details of who Rose Ann or Rossanna Fox's parent's are. One certificate states Peter and Mary Fox (nee Clark) and the other states James and Jane Fox (nee Mckee/McKie?)"

Can you tell us which certs. the info. came from & which states what please?

"Rosanna or Rose Ann Fox (Fox maiden name) was married to a Robert Anderson"

Can you give us the source of this info. please?


Are there any other docs apart from his death cert. which David Holmes McCulloch appears on with his middle name?

I've been reading a post you submitted online re your Mary/Agnes Holmes ...

"Agnes Holmes was born in Ireland around 1835 and died in 1872"

Can you tell us where Agnes died please & have you established this is the correct person as opposed to Mary?...

Looking at the info. from son David's marriage, he himself gives his mother's name as Mary i.e. more likely than the name Agnes which was stated by someone else on his death cert?
