  1. In looking at the photos in this article – I am certain that I don’t need to remind you that many times there are copyright problems in copying many of the photos. In many instances, you either need to be able to prove that you have the right to copy the item – through permission from the original photographer or prove that it wasn’t taken by a professional photographer.

  2. I look for the dates on these photographs and pay special attention to the clothing being worn by the people in the photograph. This has helped date a few photographs in my collection.

  3. Christina,Von Schoemberg,Hesse,Schreiner = Carpenter in German,
    Tarnau =Tarnow,is this the town they were from?
    Was her brother the Carpenter or what?
    Not sure about it. Or were they from the city of Schoemberg?

  4. If a photo is over 50 years old you do not need to worry about the opy right of it. I think it is even less time than that.

  5. I love to look at all photo’s of Helmsdale hoping to find some of my Relatives who come from there and Loth
    I am looking for Mckenzie, Gordon ,Mackay ,Polson and Sutherlands .All form Helmsdale
