Weekly Genealogy Wallpaper – 4/4/2011

Here is your Weekly Genealogy Wallpaper! I am going to start including some more information along with these wallpapers from time to time. Whenever I create a historical wallpaper or a location based wallpaper I will include other blogs, websites, histories and other information. Also, many of you will notice the sizes of wallpaper has changed. After a couple months of making these wallpapers and monitoring the stats of the visitors of this blog and website I have decided to modify the wallpaper sizes to better fit your computer monitor. The new sizes are close if not exact sizes of the most common monitor resolutions of the visitors. I hope these sizes will work better for your computers. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments. Civil War Wallpaper

Share the Genealogy Wallpapers with Others

Recently I have gotten quite a few emails from people saying how much they enjoy the Genealogy Wallpapers I post each week for you to download. First of all, let me say thank you to all of you who have left comments or sent me emails with the complements you have given me. I really enjoy creating these wallpapers and I'm glad you are enjoying them. I have had a few people ask me if they could post the wallpaper on their blog, email it to a friend or share it in other ways with their genealogy friends and family. I decided to create a "terms of use" page on the website. In general, this page talks about how much I enjoy making these wallpapers and how I want to continue to give them to you for free. I also talk about where I get the graphics/images for the wallpapers. I also specify where and how I would like you to share the Genealogy Wallpapers with others if you choose to do so. One of the ways you can help share the Genealogy Wallpapers with others is by placing the Wallpaper Widget I created in your own website or blog's sidebar. Below is the widget along with the HTML code you need to place in your sidebar. Again, this is not mandatory, but if you would like to help share these wallpapers with others it is a simple and easy way for others to find them.

If you are not sure how to add the HTML code above to your blog, instructions on how to add this for Blogger users are below: Once you log into your Blogger account, click on Design on your Blogger Dashboard. You will see that this is where you can add "Gadgets" to your sidebar. Click on "Add a Gadget" and scroll down until you find "HTML/Javascript". Click the little plus button to add it to your sidebar. After you click the plus button, the next window that pops up is where you will paste the HTML code from above. On this screen you can add a title to the Gadget if you want, but it isn't required. After you add the HTML code, simply click Save. Now the Genealogy Wallpapers Gadget will be on your blog's sidebar. Thanks again for all your compliments on the wallpapers and for those of you who add this Gadget to your sidebar to help share them with others! If you have any other questions, please read the Terms of Use or contact me!
