First words

So much fascinating information is locked in that old family photograph, document, or story just waiting to be brought out! All that's needed is a few new tools and some creative curiosity. This book is intended to give you those tools, all you need to provide is the curiosity.
The Digital Detective

Since the advent of the internet, a digital detective has access to the genealogical equivalent of the FBI forensics laboratory, including libraries of shoes, hats, jewelry, military uniforms and insignia, plants, photographic backdrops, tools, and almost anything else that could be used in the analysis of a photograph. These libraries include the materials photos are printed on (copper, glass, tin, and types of print papers), the dimensions of photographs produced by a variety of cameras, common practices used by commercial photographers during different time periods, and the specifications of product lines of major camera companies.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0976716003, Paperback)

Have you ever considered looking at the edges of an old photograph to find out who is in the picture? Have you ever considered epidemics as a source of genealogical information? How can you use DNA to connect your family with historical events long in the past? These are only a few of the surprising connections Forensic Genealogy offers for investigating the where, who, when, and why of your family history. As featured on NPR’s Talk of the Nation radio program (July 2005), Internet Genealogy (June 2006 Online Bonus Edition), Family Tree Magazine (April 2006), and Family Chronicle (October 2005), Forensic Genealogy offers innovative new tools for getting the most information out of your reference materials. Forensic Genealogy also suggests many unusual places to look for family history. After reading this book, you will never look at your research materials the same way again! Forensic Genealogy comes with the Forensic Genealogy CD ROM and a mail-in coupon from Family Tree DNA for a $10 discount on any testing service.
