Workshop Topics

  • 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 shoe boxes.
  • 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.
  • Discovering Genealogical Clues in 19th-Century Photographs – A single photograph can unlock a family mystery. The details are in the photographic clues. Pictures document births, deaths, marriages, and more. Use an image as genealogical proof by understanding the language of family photographs.
