This photograph has been passed down in my family (it is a copy though and not the original) but nobody in the family knows who the photograph is of. I thought that if I could perhaps narrow down the era of her clothing that it might be a clue to her possible identity. Would I be correct in ...

Military Photograph

Hi, I was wondering if anybody could please help me to identify the uniform in this photograph? This photograph has been passed down in my family but we are uncertain of who the photograph is of.

World War I Photo - Suggestions Sought

While researching my wife's family, I have discovered this photograph of three World War I soldiers.

The identify of one of these is known, but not the other two.

Therefore, I'm hoping other genealogists may be willing to give me their responses to the following questions:

1. How many years difference in age is there likely to be between the three men (assuming they may be brothers)?

2. Can anyone identify the uniforms, regiments and ...

Type of Photo and Date

Hello,

I inherited this recently from a family member.
I have no idea who they are, only an assumption as to which branch they came from. All I am hoping to establish is what type of photo this is and a rough age based on fashion/photo style.

Its printed on glass (which came as seen in photo, I do not have the missing piece). Could it be a couple on their wedding day?

Could the ...

Hello,
I am trying to determine the gentleman in this picture.

Help Dating Man and Child in Locket

Hello,

This is a locket found among my grandmothers possessions, nothing is known about it.
The Hallmark is 9 Carat gold, Birmingham with a date stamp of possibly M (1911). I have been unable to identify makers mark (AJH or AJN).

Does the image look to be from around this time (1911) or could the picture have been taken earlier and inserted at a much later date.

Thanks

Great grandmother picture

Image

Good evening,

Here is a photograph I found of my great grandmother Elsie May Johnson (1902 - 1965) she was born in South Hinksey in Berkshire and moved to Cowley, Oxfordshire when she was young. I was wondering if anybody could help say when this photograph may have been taken? It was from an album with no information on the back
