Program Description

Event Details

Old family photos are often a puzzle, but fashion trends, hairstyles and photographic methods provide clues to your family story. In a slideshow of photographs from the 1870s to the 1920s, local historian Julia Johnas illustrates clues that may be in your family photos. Do you have a puzzling photo? Bring it and Julia will examine it for dating clues.

Co-sponsored by the DuPage County Genealogical Society.

This is a hybrid event, with an in-person presenter and both in-person and virtual participants. This registration is to attend in-person. To attend via Zoom instead, click here.
