You’ll be shown how to identify clues in your photos that will help to pinpoint when and where the photo was taken, and who the people in the photo might be.

Ms. Rollins will show you how to find a variety of documents identifying date, place of death, and how to understand what the documents are telling you.
  • Sensitive Subjects: What to Conceal, What to Reveal
