Registration Required


Most genealogists have a box full of unidentified photographs, usually passed down from generation to generation. Dating your photographs can possibly help you identify who the people are and where they were. We will give you tips on using items in the photograph, as well as the photograph itself, to determine the time period in which it was taken. Bring in one or two photographs for our team to help you date. This is a beginner-level class.
