Voelker Family Antiquities Archive
The Voelker family antiquities are links to high-resolution scans of original documents that have been handed down over several generations. These documents are an important link to our family family ancestry and history. The oldest of these documents is approaching 200 years old and my goal is to make them widely available in detail while still preserving the physical documents.
The size of these documents is large in order to preserve the detail that is available in a high-resolution scan. In our cable-modem era this is less of a concern than it once was but be aware that these are large documents. Some browsers may auto-adjust the size of these document to fit within a browser window without creating scrollbars, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer is known to do this. This page on Microsoft’s site explains this behavior and how to disable this if you wish.
