ONGOING Genealogy Bargains

Save 68% on Photo Detective Collection at Shop Family Tree! Normally $155.97, now just $49.99 - “Old photos are like gold for genealogists—treasures you uncover after sifting through bags, boxes and stacks full of old family artifacts. But just like a golden ring can get tarnished, historic photographs can get damaged, torn and faded. Even those in relatively good condition could cause a family researcher problems--particularly if you can't identify the ancestor evident in the picture, or are unsure of the time and place the photo was taken. If you're looking to preserve precious photos, or pull clues to put the photo in historical context, you’ll find the strategies and resources you need in this collection.” Click here to save - via Shop Family Tree
