Are you a genealogist with unidentified photographs of your ancestors? Leslie Bellais, Curator of Social History at the Wisconsin Historical Society, will provide you ways to date those photographs, and possibly figure out which ancestor is being portrayed, by illustrating ways to date the clothing in the images. She will cover men’s and women’s clothing as portrayed in photographs from the 1840s to the first decade of the 20th century. Feel free to bring photographs for her to date
