Having images of our ancestors makes them come to life for us. We’ll learn about how you can locate images of your ancestors – some in unexpected places. Since my early days of family history research, I’ve made it a priority to locate images of my ancestors. Up to today, I have images of all of my direct line ancestors through my 2nd great grandparents, over half of my 3rd great grandparents, and several beyond that, going back before the invention of photography.
