"Locating Images of Ancestors: Putting a Face with that Name"
Presented by Andrew Likins

Since my early days of family history research, I have made it a priority to locate images of my ancestors. Up to today, I have images of all 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.
