Picture This


In our May 29th Genealogy Blog post, A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words, we told you how we were able to use signatures of some family members to substitute for photos. We have begged a wide array of family members for photos of every possible person on our tree and have been quite successful. Still, we needed photos for some and updated photos for others. And then Facebook came along. What a lifesaver. Instead of having to constantly ask for photos, they just come to us. Others, we have to search for. Finding family, and their photos, on Facebook is time consuming but very rewarding. It is a great source of recent photos of family.
