You can send us your digitized photos in any
format. However, if possible please use the JPEG format. (The file name extension
will be .jpg.)
Please include as much information as possible with your
photos. However, if you have very little information about your pictures,
please send them in anyway. After we post them others may be able provide more
information when they see your photos here.
You can "snail mail" copies of your photos on
floppy disks to us at the above address. We will not be able to return your disks however, sorry. Please send as
much information about your photos as possible.

scanned and e-mail them to us as an attachment to an e-mail message.
If you do not have a scanner yourself you might have to

shop that will scan a print for you. The important thing to remember is to have your

Note: Some e-mail services have a
limit on the size of the file you can send and receive. Therefore, it is best you
send only one photo per e-mail message. That will be better for us anyway as we are
also looking for the information you send with each photograph. We are easily
Please include all the information you can, particularly
as to who is visible in the photo. The year the photo was taken and where is always
nice to know. We have placed a form on the Send Info

If you do not have much information, send the photo
anyway! Tell us your best guess at what year it is from so we can post it.
Others may be able to write us and let us know who is shown in the photo, etc. Use
the Send Info page to let us know what you know about photos
