I have photo copies from a family bible that has since disintegrated.  I have made typed copies of the information.

Thanks for any guidance.

Hello Elaine.

There is an example in the help pages, see

If you whish, you could create a free-space profile as suggested.

Thank you that is very helpful.  Should I post both the photocopy and the type transcription in the Free-space?
If the photo copies are quite clear and legible, this could be enough, or you can also add your transcription, as you prefer.
They are partly clear clear and legible.  The pages were damaged that is why I transcribed them.  I did put them in to Space: Carrie Baker Waddell Walling Bible.  This is the source I have created.

[[Baker-27794|Carrie Baker Waddell Walling]]  [[Space:Carrier Baker Waddell Walling Bible|Carrie Baker Waddell Walling]].  Photocopies in possession of [[Walling-681|Elaine Goodner]].  Written by Carrie Baker Waddell Walling and Laura B. Waddell Walling.  Includes names, births, marriages and deaths of family member from 1866 to 1898.

Have I done it correctly?
Great work, Elaine!
