Product Description
The Dead Horse Investigation: Forensic Photo Analysis for Everyone
by Colleen Fitzpatrick, PhD

A must-have for any genealogist interested in creative ways of solving family mysteries.

Step into the 21st century of photo identification!

If you think you have squeezed every drop of information from your photos, guess again. Have you ever considered using an ultraviolet light to date your photos? What does it mean if you find a photo on the back of an old picture? How can you spot a fake? How can you tell what camera was used to take a picture of someone posing in his BVDs?

Nowadays everyone can become his own photo-expert. Even the simplest photo can lead you on an unexpected adventure. Keeping an eye out for important details is just the first step. Knowing what these details mean and how to chase them down is just as critical. Maps, catalogs, even eBay and are just a few of the useful resources available tdo the modern forensic genealogist both on and offline. You only need imagination about where to look and some creativity on how to tie things together.

Forensic genealogy is not just for rocket scientists, it is for everyone with an imagination. So if you are up for some exciting fun investigating your old photographs, this book is for you!
