FYI: Heritage Photos

Saturday, January 12th, 2013

Heritage Photos will be back on January 15th.

We are going to start the year off by looking at any photos that we can find of the trades and professions our ancestors may have been involved in.  Some are fairly obvious and photographs of them easier to find, for instance, farming, fishing and blacksmiths. Some however, continue to elude us, an Ale Conner for example. We have yet to come across a photo for that!

If you have any trades or professions that you would like to suggest, and if we can find photos for them, that have no copyright issues of course, then let us know and we will see what we can find.

As always, if you have photos you would like to share, let us know.
