    The 3 pitch pine joists shown are cross section 9.5" x 2.25".
    Supporting pitch pine beam is under joists as shown in picture below.
    Beam is getting moved from under joists to end of the joists.
    Plan to use joist hangers to connect joists to beam.

    Anyone recommend correct good structural hanger for these old joist sizes. I can't find close size?
    or ideas for best structural connection between in-line joists and in-line end beam?

    You could notch the front bottom edge of the support beam and the bottom of the joists to secure a slim steel under.
