Dating old photos of children
It covers the basics in a concise way, giving an overall look at what is involved. It's got a price on the back, and if I had seen it in a bookstore instead of on the Internet, I would have passed it up.In addition to the 8 pages of general information, there are 85 pages of real photographs with known dates. As a photo collector I've got probably a dozen books on dating photos. It's a shame too, because it reflects poorly on what I believe is a decent magazine, the "Family Chronicle".The Family Chronicle team is a group of genealogy experts and enthusiasts who came together in September 1996 to produce Family Chronicle, the magazine for families researching their roots.Since the launch of the bi-monthly magazine, Family Chronicle has enjoyed great acclaim and has established itself as a leading magazine for genealogists and family historians.A close rival in popularity to the photo posts is Useful Tips for Reading Handwritten Documents which became a long list of tips and tricks generated by comments from you and from State Records staff.
I found that this book is not worth the money I spent for it. There are only 100 pages, (three of which are advertisements) and most of them are filled with old photographs with no explanations.
The photos are classified in 5 year intervals and no detailed reasons given for why these photos are in those intervals.
