Upcoming events exploring the value of photographs...

   

"Images of Norwood" lecture following our Annual Membership Meeting
Wednesday April 22, 7:30 pm | 93 Day Street

This year’s April Meeting will feature an illustrated presentation by long-time Historical Society member Ernie Paciorkowski. He will share a selection of his own photographs that document the history of Norwood. Reminisce with us on this armchair stroll through Norwood's past and learn about the town’s architectural highlights and forgotten spots, as documented by Ernie’s keen eye. All are invited to join us for this presentation, which will begin directly after the business meeting.

 
"Unlocking the Clues of your own Family Photos"
Wednesday May 6, 7:00 pm | 93 Day Street

Have you ever sorted through a box of old family photographs and wondered of whom and in what year the picture was taken?  Maureen Taylor is an author, lecturer, and internationally known  "photo detective" who can examine the details of your old family photos to help you know more about your personal past.  How does she do it?  Join us for this special opportunity to explore the intersection of history, genealogy and photography.  

Do you have a few photos you would like to examine with an expert’s assistance?  Individual consultations may be scheduled with Maureen for the evening of this lecture, beginning at 5:00 pm.

Consultations are 15 minutes for up to three photos and the fee is $40.  Please contact Meghan Kelleher at 617-504-9900 if you would like to schedule a session.
Feeling lucky? We will raffle a private session with Maureen at the April 22nd meeting!
