Do you have photographs at home, languishing in boxes or scrapbooks? What do you plan to do to preserve this valuable family history material? Want some advice or guidance? The Genealogy Center is pleased to host Photo Detective Maureen Taylor for a free day-long seminar on historical photographs and family history on Saturday, October 24, 2015.

Sessions are:

9:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. “Identifying and Dating Family Photographs”
Audiences love this interactive lecture on discovering who’s who in their family pictures. They’ll learn 10 easy steps for naming those unidentified pictures tucked away in shoeboxes.

11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. “Buns, Beards, Bodices and Bustles: Understanding Ancestors Through Clothing”
Ancestral fashions and the industry that produced them left behind a fascinating legacy of images and information.

2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. “Google Images and Beyond”
Add new photographs to your family album by learning a few basic search techniques. A single photo can connect you to new genealogical data and a network of information.

3:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. “Eight Steps to Preserving Your Family Photographs”
Photo preservation basics from storage to labeling and everything in-between. Each step includes low-cost solutions that won’t bust your budget.
