PHOTOGRAPHS OF PIONEERS ARE A REAL
Would you like to have a photograph of your great,
great grandparents who were early pioneer settlers in Vernon County,
Missouri? Do you have a wedding photograph of an ancestor
who lived in Vernon County in the late 1890s or early 1900s?
Through this website, the Vernon County, Missouri
USGenWeb Project will help share photographs of early-day residents by posting
them on Biography pages. To help identify the time period of
photographs, a page is being developed which lists the
photographers and the dates that they
were in operation in Vernon County.
Scan old family photographs at a minimum dpi of
300 (higher resolution is okay also) and email them to the
Vernon Co Coordinator.
Include some biographical information
about the family such as where they lived, when they were in Vernon
County, family stories, etc., and the identity of the people in the picture.
You might want to submit a
Family Group Sheet on
the family, also. A
biography page will be created for the family with your contact
information listed. See these examples of biography pages with
Annie Edwards Simpson Smith
Thomas Hampton Lyons
Please send only photographs which were taken prior
to about 1920 and please identify the individuals in the photograph.
Pictures are the treasures which we can share
with others...honor your ancestors by sharing photographs of them.
