Sacramento: Dating photographs, Sept. 20

What clues should you look for to determine when a photograph was taken?

Learn more about this at the next meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Sacramento when Sandra Harris, a professional photographer for 48 years, will share tips to answer that question, on Monday, September 20.

The meeting begins at 7pm, at the Albert Einstein Residence Center, 1935 Wright St., Sacramento, California.

Harris and her husband operate the Harris Studio in Sacramento, provide photography services for families, children, weddings and other events; as well as copy and restoration assistance. She has presented programs to genealogy groups on how to care for and date old photos.

Clues include clothing, hair styles and even photographic props and posing. Harris is also knowledgeable about California History Room resources at the State Library and has worked for researchers in the US and abroad.
