Welcome to The Mansker Chronicles. I started this website nearly ten years ago as a way to disseminate information about the Mansker and Minsker family genealogy that I had collected over the years. 

It has been a "labor of love" all this time, and I hope that your visit is a pleasant and rewarding one. 

The preferred monitor resolution for viewing these pages is 800x600 or better. The site as designed is best viewed at a higher resolution, as are most of the graphics you'll see here. 

In the upper right corner of every page you'll see three small icons. Use the printer icon to print out the page you are on. Use the other two to increase the size of the text and to decrease it back to normal again. 

The site also makes extensive use of Javascript. For example, you can't use the "find in page" search feature on several of the long pages, and you can't enter the password-protected Members Only section without Javascript. 

For maximum benefit from the website, be sure that both Java and Javascript are enabled in your web browser.

The preferred font for viewing these pages is Trebuchet MS, a crisp, attractive font face designed specifically for the World Wide Web. Below is a sample of Trebuchet: 

If the words on your screen look like this, then you have it on your computer already. If you are seeing this in the Times or Times Roman font , then you don't have Trebuchet installed. 

When prompted, save the file in a temporary directory. When the file has been downloaded, open the directory and double-click on the file. The font will then be installed on your computer.
