Chicago: Analyzing photographs, Nov. 18

Chicago-area readers with puzzling family photographs might want to attend the next Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois meeting on Sunday, November 18, at Temple Israel in Skokie.

At 12.30pm, the JGSI library opens with computers and helpful assistance. New books and maps have recently been added.

At 2pm, the program begins: "Analyzing Late 19th and Early 20th Century Photographs for Family History Data" with Craig L. Pfannkuche.

Some of us have photographs of our ancestors, although often the images have no identifying names. This presentation will focus on how a family history researcher might be able to identify such individuals.

Pfannkuche will also give suggestions as to how 'unnamed' photographs can be used to add interesting material to one’s family history. JGSI members are invited to bring their own photos to get information.

The JGSI library will be open after the program until 4pm.
