Tips for Using the Article Viewer

Article Viewer

There are several options for viewing articles in the article viewer as shown above.  

Some tips to keep in mind:

  • You do not need a personal account to view articles but to interact with them (clip, share, save to Ancestry), you will need to set up a free personal account.  Ancestry interaction also requires an free account.
  • Options for saving and printing include .jpeg (image) or .pdf (portable document file).  You can save or print a page or part of a page. 
  • Different Internet browsers (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari, etc.) perform download article actions differently.  Know how it works so you don't feel like you've lost a download.  Consider saving to a flashdrive or cloud account if you use a public computer. 
  • The back button of your Internet browser will get you back to a previous screen.
