Family Photographs

Reading an arcticle today on Ancestry.com, was a great reminder about details contained in photographs and prompted today’s thoughts.

As I’ve posted before, my daughter has recently started researching one of her family lines and we’ve been talking in great depth about what I remember (not much) about this line. However, she does have a large number of family photographs. Taking one of them out of its frame was like discovering the family bible. Someone wrote the details of all the family members in the photograph, on the back of it -including names, dates and where they were buried!

So dig out those family photographs, take a good look at the details on the photograph, but also peek inside the frame. You never know what you’ll find.

Happy Hunting
