What’s a Photo Without the Story?

At last, a clear, easy to read, and engaging book that will help you uncover the stories hiding in your family photo collection. Hazel brings to life her own stories and takes the mystery out of genealogy research. This book is an excellent resource for anyone ready to tackle this project and meets the promise Hazel makes in her introduction: “I’ve never met a person who didn’t have a story worth telling. Everyone has a story, and this book will help you tell yours!”
