Genealogical significance of old photos and postcards
Many descendants of emigrants inherited photos, letters, and documents which they are unable to associate with any particular relative. In fact, photos provide us with important information concerning family histories. By deciphering the writing on the back of a photo and the name and location of the photo studio or by determining family resemblances, it is very often possible to identify relatives. Addresses and greetings on postcards also can determine relatives, or can provide details about their life, like education, military service, business travel or love relations. Postmarks provide the place names which are absolutely necessary for any research.
