Identifying Old Photographs
Amanda Wells Blackman
May 13, 2013
At W.H. Willennar Genealogy Center
(A service of the Eckhart Public Library)
6:00 social time 6:15 meeting time
Do you have an old shoebox filled with family pictures from a long ago era? You don’t want to throw them out but you have no idea who they are. Or maybe one person is identified but there is a whole lot of relatives there – wait, that one looks a little like you. What year was it taken? What the heck, you think it was way before you were born! Come listen to this interesting program that Amanda and her mom, Roselyn Wells put together out of two separate programs. Amanda Blackman, a teacher in Fort Wayne, has always been interested in family history and she has fine tuned this program, buying photos to illustrate different types of photographs. Plan on attending & bringing a couple of photos for Amanda to examine and comment on.

Pioneer Settlers Application
Our DeKalb County ancestors made it happen.
Some traveled many rough miles to get here while others were born in DeKalb County. They cleared the land, built roads and houses, planted and harvested the first crops.
If your direct descendant lived in DeKalb County prior to December 31, 1850, you may apply for a Pioneer Certificate.
