These photographs came to me in a box originally marked “Richardson”. Unfortunately, none of the photographs are labeled. I do strongly suspect the men are from my Richardson family of Pittsylvania County, VA. There is a certain family “look” I have come to recognize in Richardson family photos. However, there is the distinct possibility [...]
This photograph of a house was found among numerous Talbott family related photographs. I do not know who lived in the house or what its significance is in our family history.
I am hoping one of you might recognize it. I suspect the house is located in Pittsylvania County or Halifax County, VA. It [...]

*I was able to find the photographer WGR Frayser (both Jr and Sr) in the Danville, VA directories. This photography studio was only in Danville, VA from 1888-1891. [...]
For Christmas I received Maureen Taylor’s Uncovering your Ancestry Through Family Photographs. I’ve been reading and studying it in hopes of learning the techniques I need to identify my own “unknown” photographs.
The woman above is one of those unknowns in my collection. When I first looked at her photograph, I had no clue [...]
