A May 2015 Workshop on Dating Photographs

The Williams County Genealogical Society will hold its Spring Workshop on Saturday, May 9, 2015 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm in the West Annex of the Bryan Public Library, Bryan, Ohio.

Amanda Wells Blackman, from Indiana, will be returning to present a more in-depth program on how to date photos by type of photo, clothing and jewelry worn, hair style, medals and props used by the photographer.  This will also give her more time to help you with the photo of your ancestor to determine the approximate date or time period the photo was taken.  Bring your old family photo to be identified after the formal presentation.

You must register with Jane at the library 419-636-6734, due to limited space, by Wednesday, May 6, 2015.  There will be a $5.00 registration fee.

Pizza and coffee will be provided for lunch or you may bring your own lunch and beverage.

The purpose of the WCGS is preservation of county records and family research.  Monthly meetings are held on the second Monday of each month, excluding July and August, at 6:30 pm, in the West Annex of the Bryan Public Library.  The public is invited to attend all meetings.  For further information concerning the WCGS, visit the website at www.wcgs-ogs.com or write the WCGS, P.O. Box 293, Bryan, Ohio 43506.
