Inside, you'll learn how to: Determine the type of image you have - from common paper prints to stereographs to historical daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, and tintypes Use clothing, accessories, and hairstyles to date the image in the correct decade Research photographer's imprints to narrow down when and where the photo was taken Compare facial features in multiple photos to confirm identity and family resemblance Interview family members to gather more information about the image Identify props in the photo to create context for the image Each chapter includes dozens of historical photos to illustrate key points and provide clear examples. Charts, timelines and resource lists make it easy to find the exact information you need. Dozens of case studies show you how to apply the techniques in the book to real-life photo research projects. The answers to your family photo questions are closer than you think. Let this book help you start finding them today
