GENERAL RESOURCES

AncientFaces.com
AncientFaces is a photo exchange, a database of photos submitted by users that enables people tracing their family trees to place faces with names. At present, the site contains over 5,000 photos. These may be searched by keyword, name, date, or location. They can also be browsed alphabetically by surname. There are several special collections here as well, including military photos. Photos are presented as thumbnails with a brief description, location, family, and a link to the e-mail address and homepage (if available) of the person who submitted the photo. A great resource for making family connections or just browsing old photos.
