Asher Newspaper Article Archive: Instructions
This PDF file contains the full text of all the Asher newspaper articles I have from 1902 to the present.  This is a very large file (25 MB) and will take 5-10 minutes to download with a broadband connection.  If you are on a dial-up connection, I do not recommend attempting to download this.  You can request a CD by emailing me.

A few things to know:

  • These instructions and the example below are for Adobe Reader 8.  If you do not have this version or if yours is configured differently, everything may not appear in the same position.
  • Much of the archive is searchable.  Older articles in which the print is not very clear will not be, however.  To search, type a search term in the Find box and press ENTER.  The first instance the word is found will be highlighted.  Use the arrow back and arrow forward buttons which will appear to the right of the Find box to view other results.
  • The page number you are currently viewing will appear on the tool bar.  In the below example, the current page is 30/320.  To view other pages, you can click the left and right arrows that appear to the left of the page number.  You can also simply type in a new page number and press ENTER.
  • To the right of the page number is the zoom.  You can zoom in and out by clicking the - and + buttons.  The current zoom level appears to the right of the + button.
  • You can print a page by clicking the printer button.
