Having trouble posting...but trying again

Postby Lainey » 03 Jul 2015, 19:37

My cousin (a different cousin than the one mentioned in a different thread) sent me pictures of my great-uncle's birth and baptism certificates. I was unable to post them but I need help translating. Can anyone help me, please?

Hi there

Try the following and the record should post for you:
Click on "Choose File"
Choose the record from your file which you want posted by clicking on it.
Then click on "open"
Click on Add the file.
Click on submit.
It should be here.

Edit: Recently, at times, there have been issues posting attachments on the forum but I tried attaching a file here earlier today and it attached fine. I've just deleted the attachment that I posted as it wasn't relevant.

If you do not have success with Angela's suggestion... you might try an image sharing site such as http://www.postimage.org
Once you upload the image, just choose the URL for Thumbnails for Forum1 and paste it in your post.

I tried posting it again, but same thing--it thinks for awhile and then gives me a blank reply box. No image.

I think the problem is that it's too large, as the postimage link didn't work, either, and it said it was because it was too big. It's a PDF file. Any other suggestions? Thanks.

I'll just try and post a PDF and see what happens.

So I am able to post a PDF. How large was your file.

Edit: I've deleted my attachment again as it had no relevance.

I have sent you a PM (private message) with my email address.
Send me the images and I will try to post them here to the forum for you :-)

Thank you! I have sent them. I have mostly translated the typed stuff on the birth and baptismal certificates, but the handwritten stuff is mostly beyond me. It may be easier for someone familiar with the language. Or not, lol.

I can't post smilies, either. :/

Thank you so much!

I thought maybe the date was transposed in that one section of the baptismal certificate...like it was supposed to be 1918 instead of 1981, maybe? Is that possible?

The date of baptism is 1918.
The date of the extract .... a copy produced at a later date....was written in 1981
