There is plenty of time to plan for this all day program.
Photographs are such an important part of our genealogical research. To have the world-renowned “Photo Detective” provide her valuable knowledge for four 1 hour programs is nothing short of spectacular!
For those registered for the conference, there is also a special opportunity on the Friday afternoon before the conference day itself to have a 15 minute private consultation regarding your photographs with Maureen Taylor for a special $30 fee. No consultations will be done on the day of the program. Details are all included in the above PDF for the program. Again, a consultation can be arranged on the Friday afternoon, September 27, 2013, with Maureen Taylor for those registered for the conference.
More details regarding the private consultation process will become known as the conference date approaches. Keep visiting the Conference page of the society for consultation details.
