A few months ago, I asked for family photos of interesting hairstyles. I was overwhelmed with the response.

So many photos presented a problem. How could I present them?  A slide show was the answer. I used Picasa, a free photo organizing tool from Google. I included a musical track just for fun.

Credits are at the bottom of each slide. There's some additional information as well. If a photo was submitted without a date, I tried to add a date to it. Enjoy!

(Here's a viewing tip: To watch the slideshow in full-screen mode so the captions are easier to read, look at the bottom gray bar of the video screen and click the rectangle button, located on the right side next to the up arrow button.)

Look for my ancestral hairstyles article in the May 2009 Family Tree Magazine (on sale now!).

What a delightful slideshow. Can't you just imagine how much work it would have been to put hair up as these people have, and how difficult it must have been to care for long hair when they didn't have running (or warm) water? Sue E.

What slide show? Nothing appeared except the little box in the upper left-hand corner indicating that there should be a picture.

I just tried it and it worked, but if you can't see the video it is also available on the Family Tree Magazine You Tube Channel. . This is the link.
