Default Family History Photos - Holidays

October 2012

Each month we will be asking members to post up family history photographs from a particular catagory. Now that the summer weather seems to have vanished for those of us in the UK, I thought this might be a good time to look back at sunnier times, so this month our photo catagory is 'holidays'! Do you have any holiday photos from the past?

Photos posted on this thread will eventually be added to our 'Decades of Family History Photographs' forum in order to help others with dating old photographs. (You are welcome to post any photos you like directly to the Decades forum at any time; these monthy requests are just further encouragement!)

Please note that this thread is on an open forum so any captions to your photos may be picked up by Google searches. If you are lucky you may make a family history contact through your post! I made my best family history contact ever through a photograph caption posted on this site!

There is no restriction to the number of photographs you post each month - the more the merrier! However, please make separate posts if your photos are from different decades. Remember to caption your photograph and if you know the date or approximate date, please state that also. If you are unsure, then that is something we can discuss on the thread.

You will need to use photobucket or a similar site to host your pictures. If possible please scan your photos at between 300 and 600dpi - if you need help with uploading your images see here:

How to upload images

Please make sure you have the permission of any named living people in your photos to post their image.
