Identifying Family Photos

Are you the lucky family historian who's been charged with preserving, researching and sharing your family's archive of photos?

This session will provide you with tips and guidance on how to identify and use photo attributes to help crack the case.
What you'll learn: tips for using family photograph elements
such as clothing, photo materials and shape, and furniture
to identify details such as date, location, occasion and more.
