Speakers on this occasion will be:

Tom Doig – ‘Dating late-Victorian Photographs’
Great grand-mother’s boxes of old photographs, particularly her cartes d’visite, were a source of fascination when we were children. She knew who the people were and so never wrote their names on the reverse. Using unusual techniques, in this talk we look for clues to their identification and suggest procedures for dating them.

Ann & Mike Hicks – ‘Cornwall’s War History Project’
Cornwall Family History Society is producing a new website to commemorate the beginning of the First World War. The aim is to produce a fully searchable index of anyone connected with Cornwall during both world wars and subsequent conflict, including not just service people but also civilians like fire-fighters and nurses. It is intended to include photographs of individuals, war graves and memorials, and also some information about what was happening in towns and villages around Cornwall during and after the war years.
