January is usually a full house and our best attended meeting of the year and 2018 proved to be no exception. 402 members were in attendance to hear Maureen Taylor, The Photo Detective, present "Identifying and Dating Family Photos." From comments overheard after the meeting is was a very well received presentation.
She identified major characteristics of photographic methods, types of images, how to start at home and network with relatives, clothing clues, and using any photographer's imprints to help identify the photographic.
In her afternoon workshop, 100 additional members were on hand for her presentation "Discovering Genealogical Clues in Photographs." Her first question was is a photograph a Genealogical Document? Yes it is!
Handouts are available in the "Members Only" section for 60 days.
