Do you have old pictures? Not sure when they were taken? If you know the type of photographic technology used you can approximately date your pictures. This can help you narrow down who may be in the picture based on the time period. Check out my article:

Using Photography to Date our Ancestors

Loved your article. I have a few old photos and am fortunate that we "know" who they are of.

Found a site that has a lot of pictures online for different families. Some are identified, some are unknowns. You can even post your own pictures on the site. It might help others. The site is: http://www.deadfred.com/

I am amazed and very happy that so much progress has been made in making it a little easier to help each other and to "play detective". When we did our geneology several years ago, well it took us about 15 years, a lot of this new technology was not available. My Mother and I worked for a long time....(tearing our hair out at the roots part of the time). But we got it done as far back as we could on both sides of family. (1011) on one side...accuracy of that ??

We were fortunate to have lots of really old pictures passed down by different branches of the families...so we have made copies of those to put in each book for family members.

I wish dating was my issue. My biggest problem is trying to figure out who the people are in the boxes (two of them) FULL of photos I have. One grandparent died, then we inherited the box--few of the photos have names or initials or places. The other grandparent had alzheimers and removed them from the family album where notes did exist.. but now we can't match them back to the pages they were removed from.

Fun stuff!

It is great the progress we've come. I can remember the days of going with my mom as a youngster and sitting for hours in the library while she viewed microfilm for the 1880 census, etc. Now with the click of a button it comes up free at home.

Lynn, I too, inherited alot of pictures with NO name on them. I think I know which side of the family, but that is it. I have close to 100 pics. with no idea who they are.

I got an email from someone who is over Fototagger that helps label pictures. I am goint to do a review on it soon, but I'll go ahead and post a link to it here. Seems like a great tool for pictures. and it is FREE.... Foto Tagger

Thanks for those links!
We recently met up with some long lost cousins and swapped a BUNCH of pictures. I know the "Who" but I don't know the "When". <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

This should help...
Thanks a million!

For help in labeling photos or digital images, I recommend a free download at FotoTagger....I downloaded it, and am learning about it by playing around with it.. FotoTagger
