Images from the new scanner at the Family History Library

This is a scan of a microfilmed image of a marriage from Haltwhistle in Northumberland, England, that I made last week at the Family History Library using their new scanners. I am going to have to become more familiar with the scanners as when I really zoom on these images they do not look as sharp as the old ones. I must have had something not set the correct way when I made these images. They will work just fine, but if they had things I wanted zoomed in, that would make it more difficult.
This is the 1839 marriage for James Watson and Mary Liddell. This family will be discussed in an upcoming "Casefile Clues" column.
