Tracing those old photographs..

Most family historians will have a large digital collection of old family photographs stored on their PCs or data storage drives. Some of the photos may have been given to you. It may be the case you are not sure who all the people are in the photographs or even where the photographs came from. For the ever-curious family historian, there is the thought if anyone else in the world has the same photograph and if they have more knowledge on the people pictured in the photos.

With this in mind, it’s worth taking a look at the website TinEye.com

You simply submit an image and it will tell you if there is a copy of the exact image anywhere else on the internet. TinEye can be a fun way to stumble upon distant living relatives and can be a way to break down those occasional genealogical brick-walls we all come across!
