The German Genealogy Group will meet this Thursday, Oct. 2, at the Hicksville VFW.
The orientation will begin at 7 p.m. and the meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. The speaker will be Maureen Taylor who will discuss “Photographs and Family History: Tips for Dating and Identifying Family Photos.”
A photograph is an important genealogical document if you know how to read the clues — photographic method, photographer’s work dates, fashion and family history. Adding up the evidence can reveal new pieces of your family history or lead you to new sources.
Ms. Taylor is known as “The Photo Detective.” She is a frequent keynote speaker on photo identification, photograph preservation, and family history at genealogy societies, national conferences, and libraries. Maureen is the author of several books and hundreds of articles. She is currently a contributing editor of Family Tree Magazine and writes personal memoirs and narrative family histories for the Newbury St. Press of the New England Historic Genealogical Society.
The Hicksville VFW is located at 320 South Broadway. For more information, go to the club web site at:
