Are you one of the millions of Americans obsessively woring on tracing your roots? Are you looking at a film clip or photo trying to figure out who the person is? Perhaps it s your great grandfather or your great uncle. Perhaps the clues can be found in obscure adornments on pins, jewelry or hairstyles.
Maureen Taylor has emerged as the nation’s foremost historical photo detective. A lover of photo mysteries, she is an internationally known expert on photo identification, photo preservation, and family history. She has been featured in the Wall Street Journal and on The Today Show, The View and NPR.
About Maureen Taylor, Photo Detective
In 1978, Maureen fell in love at first sight–with a shiny metal photograph known as a daguerreotype. The people looked real and touchable as if they could step out of the frame into the present. In a moment, all the history she’d studied and the families she researched came together. She knew this was not infatuation, but the real thing. She’s never looked back. As a photo curator, genealogist, and now as a writer and photo identification/preservation expert, the focus of Maureen’s work remains family photography, history and genealogy.
Through PhotoDetective.com, she’s dedicated to helping those who share her infatuation with discovering the stories behind images of the past.
