Maureen Taylor

Are you trying to put a name to that unfamiliar face standing next to your favorite aunt, trying to figure out when and where a treasured family picture was taken, or merely looking for ways to gather, preserve, and share your family pictures?  Then join us for an unforgettable event with the Photo Detective, Maureen Taylor, as she applies her knowledge and experience in analyzing and uncovering genealogically relevant information from your photographs.

This will be a hour and half of informative and no doubt entertaining presentation using pictures submitted by our membership.  We are looking for 15 volunteers to submit a high resolution digital scan (.jpg) of your family picture by 25 March 2020.  We are limiting this opportunity to one photograph per member to ensure greater participation for all.  Remember to include a scan of the back of the photo if there are any markings or notes.  In addition to the photograph, include your question or mystery you are trying to solve with this particular photograph.  The first 15 members to RSVP below will be signed up for this grand opportunity.  

Please adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Provide images in JPG format,
  • Limit your image file size to no more than 2MB,
  • Name the files as follow:
    • photo: LASTNAME-FIRSTNAME-FGS-PHOTO.jpg
    • back notes: LASTNAME-FIRSTNAME-FGS-BACK.jpg
    • question: LASTNAME-FIRSTNAME-FGS-QSTN.jpg
