Photo Gallery

This gallery contains high quality photos of our ancestors. You may download the photos if you would like to make prints. The photos are grouped according to the family names.

Please Contribute to this Gallery

Photographs of our ancestors are a great treasure, and the new technology allows us to share those photographs with everyone who would like a copy. If you have good photos of anyone listed in this tree, I welcome copies that can be added to this gallery for sharing on the web.

The best way to submit a photo is to scan the photo at a resolution of about 300 dpi and save the file in JPEG (.jpg) format. You can send the file to me as an email attachment. Alternatively, you can send a high quality copy of the photo, such as a copy from a Kodak Picture Maker kiosk. My mailing address is

If you send original photos, I will be happy to return them, but I can not be responsible for photographs lost in the mail.

How to Make Prints

These photos are generally suitable for making prints up to 8 by 10 inches in size. They are all in JPEG (.jpg) format. Once you have downloaded the photo files to your computer, there are a number of ways to make prints.

Many of today's inexpensive computer printers can make good quality prints. For best results use special photo papers. I've heard that you can spray the prints with a UV blocking spray that seals the print and protects it from fading, but I have not tried this yet.

Another option is to transfer the file to a PC floppy disk and make a print on at Kodak Picture Maker kiosk. These kiosks are available at many drug stores, camera stores, and other stores that offer film processing. I tried the kiosk at a local drug store and thought the prints were excellent quality. I don't know how long they will last without fading.

Finally, there are a number of Web sites that offer print making. Typically, you have to sign up, upload the files to their site, and then order prints. I have tried Ofoto, but was pretty happy with the quality of their prints. Another possibility is Shutterfly, but I have not tried them.
