Interview with a Taphophile: The Photo Angel
"It all began with a pile of labeled photos of non-relatives that were mixed in with my grandparents’ old family pictures. Were they friends? Classmates? War buddies? Neighbors? I was determined to find out. So I started poking around genealogy websites and BINGO! I immediately began connecting with relatives of the photographed. Now I’m hooked! I love to visit antique stores to thumb through their pictures in my quest to find those that are labeled so that I may return them to their family members. One woman affectionately dubbed me, “The Photo Angel.” The purpose of this project is to document success stories and encourage others to search their attics and local antique stores for photos with identifiable information and join in the fun! Happy Hunting! 📸
Thank you Kate Kelly for being here on the Podcast this week! Here's a little about her!
"I am currently in my 19th year of teaching as a highly qualified, professionally licensed (Pre-K-8), special education teacher and certified Wilson Reading instructor.
