Several weeks ago we put out a call for images for inclusion in my new book, Family Photo Detective (available for preorder in Family Tree Shop). Pictures poured into my inbox and the Family Tree Magazine inbox, and many were posted on the Family Tree Magazine Facebook page.
Congratulations to Michael Hanrahan, who sent in the winning image and will receive a copy of the book!
You’ll have to wait for the book for the full story of his photograph, but I thought you’d like to see the picture:
And a closer look:
It’s a really fun picture of a group of women at a party. Here’s what Mike says about it: “These ladies include my great-grandmother, grandmother, and numerous great-aunts. I’m thinking the picture was taken around 1910 in Elmira, NY.”
I’ll tell you more about this photo in the future.
You can view the other entries in our slideshow on Flickr. I’ll be featuring many of these images in future blog posts.
