Photos & scanned documents added

Photos added!! Documents added!! More wanted!

Thanks to the generous submissions by family members, the Photo Album now contains hundreds of photos and scanned documents relating to persons in the family tree. Documents include histories, letters, hand drawn charts, cemetery maps, and more.

The photo album contains category sections for Deceased persons, Living persons, Gravestones, Documents, Places and Famous Connections. If you are not logged in, you will see the Deceased persons and Gravestone sections only.

Hint: Use the search field at the top of the Photo Album and type in the persons surname (last name) at birth. If you want your search to look through all category sections (Living persons, Deceased persons, Gravestones, Documents, etc.) then click first on the 'Home' link to go to the top section of the photo album. To search only in a specific section, start in the section you want to limit the search to.

Family Tree links to photo database - Many of the records in the Family Tree now provide a link that you can use to automatically search the photo database for all photos and documents relating to the person you are viewing in the tree. Click here for an example. (clicking on search for photos will open up a new browser windo for the photos)
