Speaker: Maureen Taylor, The Photo Detective
Photo Detective Roadshow
A joint presentation by Sudbury District, Nipissing District, Sault Ste. Marie District, and the Greater Sudbury Public Library

Our featured speaker will be Maureen Taylor, widely known as The Photo Detective. Maureen is sought out by clients all over the world. Her pioneering work in historic photo research is unprecedented, evidenced by her success in solving photo mysteries.  The author of books, scholarly articles, and online columns, she appeared on The View, The Today Show, Pawn Stars, and others. She has been featured in numerous publications including The Boston Globe, The New York Times, Better Homes and Gardens, and was dubbed “the nation’s foremost historical photo detective” by The Wall Street Journal.  She also writes a popular blog.

If you are fortunate to have older photos in your family history collection, you may have questions or you may want to learn more about identifying the who, what, when, and where. Maureen says that if you’ve watched Antiques Roadshow, then you know how this will work.

Participants are invited to submit a photo via Google Formsno later than October 10th.  Maureen will choose 10 to 15 photos to investigate in advance, for discussion live on October 18th. 

Your submission (limit of one per person) can be made at:
