My second cousin Kay (Kennedy) Frederickson sent me an old family photo, possibly from 1895 – 1896, as the youngest daughter was born in 1895, appearing to be one or two years old. Kay and I share a set of great-grandparents Stephen Foley and Catherine (Meier) Foley, making us second cousins.

Photo tips
1. Share family photos
2. Try to identify the faces in the photos with the help of family.
3. Tell people you are trying to name the faces, by posting on a blog, Facebook, Twitter or one of the family tree sites, such as ancestry.com
4. Ask for comments from family, as there might be other information they have, that you do not.
5. Have fun! Yes, it’s work, but you are finding information of your past you can share in the future.
