Identifying Your Family Photographs

Presented by Akron-Summit County Public Library, Special Collections Division at Akron-Summit County Public Library (Main), Akron OH

Apr 10 2021
Identifying Your Family Photographs

Unlocking the stories of unidentified photographs requires some sleuthing. This class includes tips and techniques for identifying historic photographs.

Learn to read clues, such as the type of photograph, clothing, and hairstyles, and even whether or not subjects are smiling, to reveal the stories behind every photograph. This workshop will also take a look at how genealogy databases and local history resources can be used to identify your family photographs.

This program will be presented via Zoom. You will receive an e-mail with the participation weblink one day before the program. If you are unable to attend or do not have an e-mail address, please contact the Special Collections Division by phone at 330.643.9030 or by e-mail at speccollections@akronlibrary.org.

Access Genealogy & Local History databases available through the library, and browse photograph dating and identification books in our catalog.
