What photos tell us, Mysteries and Answers

On the surface a photo might be a simple family snapshot or a street scene in your small home town.  You may see the focus of the image, the people, the family dog or your childhood home.  But, if you look beyond that you may see so much more.

This class will go through the steps to really use a photo in genealogy.

The houses, the car, and the people all help date the picture, but photographs have a way of transcending time. They act as visual reminders of what’s come before us, or they freeze frame moments from our own lives. The really important thing to remember about a picture is that not only does it tell a story it acts as a trigger for them as well.
