December 12, 2017  Identifying Old Photos by Ann McKee

Ann began researching her family in 2013 after she retired from a career as a school librarian. In the beginning her goal was to identify the people in over 130 photographs of her mother's family, dating from the Civil War through the first half of the 20th century. Her research allowed her to identify over 110 of those photographs, the subjects of which played a role in her becoming a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Daughters of the Republic of Texas.
