Help!! 1860 US Census same page, two images. One too light making text illegible, one readable.
Two images of same census page from two sources: FamilySearch image way too light resulting in many [illegible] transcriptions, the other Image correctly exposed showing all [illegible] - makes a huge difference in sourcing
- Illinois > Menard > Township 19 Range 5 > image 5 of 29; from "1860 U.S. Federal Census - Population," database, Fold3.com (hxxp://www.fold3.com : n.d.); citing NARA microfilm publication M653 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.).
- Image way too light resulting in many [illegible] transcriptions
- Year: 1860; Census Place: Township 19 Range 5, Menard, Illinois; Roll: M653_205; Page: 880; Image: 132; Family History Library Film: 803205.
- Image correctly exposed - makes a huge difference in sourcing
So, may I edit [illegible] on the FamilySearch index using what I can see on the NARA image? As I mentioned makes a huge difference in this instance (multiple marriages).
