This web site is devoted to the Scottish emigrants who settled/developed the state of Kansas/USA and to OUR heritage, including those settlers who settled areas in other countries: BURNS, CAMPBELL, CASH , GORDON, MacDONALD, MacFARLANE, MacINTOSH, MacKENZIE, MacTAVISH, STEWART, THOM(P)SON, to mention but a few.

Interested in Creating a Website? Take the time to take a class in HTML. Understand what makes up a webpage and how the objects integrate and function. Learn about browsers and how to address the needs of your audience. The new free software from free web space providers is very nice. But if it doesn't do what you want for any reason, you will have a lot of difficulty making your page look good when you don't why something works the way it does. You'll see a lot of 2nd rate web sites on the Internet. You get as much out of your web site as you put into it.

Using Images on your Web Site

Dummies Daily

If you have a Web site, it's time to use your digital camera or scanner and place some images online. Keep these tips in mind for the best results:

Save your images as .jpg only.

Make sure your image is no larger than 72 dpi (dots per inch).

Choose RGB (red, green, blue) for your image, which is what monitors use. CMYK is for print purposes only.
