Historical Photo Resources

Photographs of people and places can really add to your Family History when you're trying to tell a story.    They can also open up new ideas for places to find new stories, or answer questions.

Just remember, if you choose to use a photograph in any of your written documents, make sure you in the very least give credit to the source of the photos, if not contact the photographer or holder to request their permission.
