Call for Pictures of Ancestors! You Could Win Our Family Photo Detective Book!
Posted by Diane

photo-detective Would you like to win a copy of our forthcoming book Family Photo Detective: Learn How to Find Genealogy Clues in Old Photos and Solve Family Photo Mysteries, and see your ancestors' faces in Family Tree Magazine?

Send us your favorite old family photo by Monday, June 4, and you could be the big winner (your photos may even appear in the book). Here's what the outside of the book looks like:
 


Inside Family Photo Detective, historical photography and genealogy expert Maureen A. Taylor will show you how to add names and stories to the faces in your old family photos. You'll learn how to use the clues in clothing, hairstyles, background and photographer's marks to identify when and where old photographs were taken. Case studies will show you how to apply photo-identification techniques to your family photos and combine photo evidence with your research in historical records.

The book will include a timeline of photography methods and styles, a decade-by-decade overview of fashion trends for men and women, and worksheets to record discoveries about family photos.

To send us your photo, e-mail it to us or post it to our Facebook page by Monday, June 4.

Note that by submitting your photo, you affirm that you are the owner of the image and it is not subject to copyright by any other party. You also grant Family Tree Magazine permission to crop the digital image as necessary for publication, and to use the image in any and all print and electronic media.

Questions? Comment here or e-mail us.

Your photo contest sounds wonderful. We've had an old picture of unidentified relatives for years without any clue of who they are. I think it's a great photo, but I'm certainly not counting on winning. Will the non-winner photos also be identified in some way?

Hi, Jane,
We can't promise, but we hope to use some of the photos in our Photo Detective column and on the Photo Detective blog. Thanks for submitting yours!
