Identities Lost and Found: Bringing Old Family Photos Into Focus
PRESENTERS: Trae Nicholson, Barbara Lu Baltazar, and Evelyn Lee
Saturday, April 27, 2019
10:00 am – 12:30 pm
If you have any family photographs with “mystery people” in them – you are not alone. For lack of proper labeling and the passage of time, names and/or the significance of an individual in a family photo album are lost as their image(s) are passed down from one generation to the next.
Trae and Barbara will share various approaches to help move “mystery people” out of the dark and into the light. Over the past 6 years Trae has successfully identified all the 20 “unknowns” in her father’s box of photographs that had been in storage for nearly 45 years.
**Attendees are invited to share their own family photo mysteries, solved or unsolved.
Preserving Your Family Photos, Letters and Documents: What do you do with the box of old photos and documents? Evelyn will show you archival materials to preserve your treasured family history.
Trae, Barbara and Evelyn have been members of CFHGSC since 2012.
Refreshments will be served. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help with refreshments.
