We are gathering quite a formidable collection of photographs thanks to your generosity. Every bit of information makes this collection even more valuable. Here is a little tidbit I saw in the Ancestry Daily News:
Scrapbookers know the value of “journaling” the story behind a photograph. Choose a photograph from your collection and write down everything you know about it. Include the five W’s in questions like;
- Who is in the photograph?
- When was it taken?
- Where was it taken?
- What was happening? What feelings does it evoke?
- Why is it significant and important to your family history? A picture’s worth a thousand words, but a picture with the story behind it is priceless!
