Format: Paperback
I am really enjoying this book. I think it's a bit pricey for a paperback. I suppose there is alot of interest in family history so, they don't have to reduce the price. At the moment, it has confirmed the dates of photos that I have. I think it is a very useful book. It gives you useful tips on how to date photos. Some are obvious. Well, obvious once you know!Family Photographs and How to Date Them (Family History)

This is not only an interesting book in its own right but of great help in dating miscellaneous photos and placing them in the family tree.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. M. Connolly on 4 April 2012
Format: Paperback
Each decade from the 1850s to the 1940s is allocated a chapter in this excellent guide to dating family photographs. After a short introduction to the types of photographs and the styles of dress, the majority of each chapter is given over to photograph examples and commentary on them. This formula works very well, and as a result I shall turn to this book ahead of the two volumes produced by the Federation of Family History Societies, Dating Nineteenth Century Photographs, and the companion volume on the Twentieth Century. These latter books give fuller guidance about the history of photography, however, so to use the books together would give the best coverage.
Shrimpton's photographs leave me wanting to know more about the individuals shown, rather like family history research itself!!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An extremely useful and readable little book, giving excellent descriptions and photographs of costume from 1850-1950, enabling family photographs to be dated to within a decade. It also gives details of photographic techniques in the different early decades of photography.

This is a very informative book. Sectioned into decades it gives good photographs and descriptions. A must for the amateur Genelogist.
