SPEAKER: David Thomen, Family Genealogist and member of FRGS
TOPIC: USING OLD FAMILY PHOTOS TO HELP COMPLETE YOUR GENEALOGY PICTURE!

We’ve all faced that situation of finding an old family photo, but not being able to identify the people in the picture. Is it Grandma, Great, Great Grandma or a Great Aunt? Dave will explain methods for helping you find clues to solve that mystery. In addition, family photos of those people you know may also hold valuable clues that you’ve overlooked. Dave’s presentation will cover how to use photos to help you in your overall genealogy search. He has been working on his family’s genealogy for over 45 years. He’ll share with you hints and strategies he’s used to build his family genealogy picture. Old photos and their preservation has been a key tool in his research.
