Workshop on Dating Old Photos  (Genealogy Events)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
PGCGS Library, 12219 Tulip Grove Dr., Bowie, MD 20715
Old family photographs are priceless gifts but can frustrate us when we don’t know the subject. Determining a time frame can help.  What clues do these records offer to help us set a time frame for undated, unidentified photos? Estimating the year of the photo can help us identify the subjects, or at least limit the possibilities.
Join us for a presentation on dating clothing styles by Ann Wass, Ph.D. in Historic Costumes and textiles and former staff historian at Riversdale Mansion.  Heather Olsen, VP and Program Chair of PGCGS, will provide examples of how photographic processes offer clues to a photo’s time period.
Feel free to bring family photos you would like help in dating.  We will share attempts to apply what we learned to dating old photographs.
This event is free and open to members and non-members, but space is limited.
