The Family Photo – Family History Month

Radio National’s Life Matters had a fascinating programme on the family portrait this morning – timely given today’s post on Allan Meiers extended family history on Fishermans Bend. The stories were rich, the ideas interesting, and the advice basic, consistent and strong.

  • Make sure you identify people in photographs whether in hard or digital copy. It is so frustrating for the Society to receive tantalising photographs with no identification
  • Back up your pictures in  different formats and distribute them in several places

Here is a link to the programme or search the ABC website for Life Matters.

Have you conducted any family history that has a Port Melbourne thread?
