Identifying Old Photographs


The family photo album passed down from Julia Etta Squire Anderson to her daughter Mary Elizabeth Anderson Wilson, and then to her daughter Nellie Pauline Wilson Gritten, is a treasure trove of interesting and beautiful photographs that document the family's long history. Thoughtfully, the caretakers of this family history frequently made detailed notes on the back of photographs describing the people and places featured, as well as their relationships within the family group. In combination with this information, previous genealogical work and Graphics Atlas, as well as other online resources for identifying old photographs, new discoveries of family history have been made with the help of the information gleaned from these artifacts.
