Dating and Identifying Old Family Photos
Many family photos feature unidentified people – we think they must be relatives, but are not sure who they are. In this workshop, learn simple tricks and techniques to help identify when a photo was taken. Combine that information with your knowledge of family history to put names to the faces in the photograph. Bring one or two photos to the workshop or use sample photos provided.
