Gena Philibert Ortega will present “Finding Images”.
Looking for ways to interest family members in their family history, make your research more interesting or even learn more about your ancestor in relation to history? Images can help you not only tell a story but convey a historical time period. In this presentation we will look at what types of images are available to researchers including historic photo collections, maps, postcards and stereographs and where to find them online.
