R/United States - Genealogy/Photographs in genealogy
  SGSLibrary | Aug 21, 2010 |
An excellent primer on collecting, organizing and interpreting old photos for genealogy and family history research. This book provides worksheets for labeling photos with important information and provides bibliographies for more in-depth takes on subjects like investigating clothing, props and hairstyles to figure out the time and place a photo was taken. Tips for investigating photographers and information on the history and types of photographs out there make this a well-rounded guide. You don't have to be a genealogist or historian to find this book interesting and useful! ( )

A good overview of the the topic, with great list of resources that go into more detail. Well organized and full of photos. I rescue old photos and this book gave me some ideas for how to date photos more precisely to identify the possible birth year of subjects.

A quick read, but a very useful overview of the history of photography and many suggestions on how to better interpret the time and source of historic photos. ( )
