Identities Lost and Found: Bringing Old Family Photos Into Focus: If you have any family photographs with “mystery people” in them – you are not alone. For lack of proper labeling and the passage of time, names and/or the significance of an individual in a family photo album are lost as their image(s) are passed down from one generation to the next.
Trae and Barbara shared various approaches to help move “mystery people” out of the dark and into the light. Over the past 6 years Trae has successfully identified all the 20 “unknowns” in her father’s box of photographs that had been in storage for nearly 45 years.

Trae, Barbara and Evelyn have been members of CFHGSC since 2012.
