Genealogy Corner Main Page
Short message from the desk of Claire Santos-Daigle.
Some of the links below, direct you to items found throughout the entire site, that are of specific interest to Genealogist and others, like the Victorian albums, can only be navigated to, from this page.
We separated the two sections because of the overwhelming information that would exhaust the general public with short attention spans and lack of interest in reading details, that wouldn't interest them. If there are any related topic or ideas for this section, you think we should include here just let us know. and we may research it for you. This site is constantly evolving, and being re-evaluated for accurate information. Please tell us if there are any discrepancies. We understand that you enjoy the hunt for information that may lead you to that next great find, so now, for your reading and viewing pleasure, here is your corner of our site. Enjoy!
Jamboree will be held June 7, 8, 9, 2013 in Burbank, California.
The largest genealogy event on the West coast.
If you missed it, count on it being about the same time every year and come back for an update.

Photos Made Perfect is making an effort to return lost antique photo albums to their descendants. We are hopeful and prefer to find the descendants of this book, with that said, if someone shows an interest in these photo for any other reason than genealogy, we will consider the opportunity to make better use of them. There is a charge for copies.
These photographs are interesting for many reasons. You may be searching for a surname that may be in these books. They are an opportunity to study for photographic styles, an interest to costume designers and home decorators. These books are a collection of cabinet cards, card de visits and tintypes. Teachers can direct students to this site, to see why or how we know so much about times past, by studying photographs. They are useful for photo dating as well. You may be interested in finding photos by a particular photographer from the 1800"s to help you with photo dating. We listed the names of photographers and their addresses found on the backs of these photos. Many of the images have names and dates on them. Give us a call. 619-397-7600. If you are looking for a specific subject give us a call, we just might have what your looking for in our archives not shown on this site.

Any one that has found photographs with names on them and would like to display them here, are welcome. If someone contacts us about a photo you placed, we will give them your contact information. Just e-mail us the photo, give us your contact information and tell us anything you can about the photo that would be helpful.
Check for your surnames here, it's worth a look if you have the heart of a true genealogist!
Some people were under the unfounded impression that upon being found, the photos would be given to them free of charge. Good news! you found them and all we ask is a small fee for a printable copy or the original, depending which image it is, five to seven dollars. We think this is reasonable since there is a cost to purchasing them and having them scanned and present on this site since 2003 to present.
It's a huge mistake to choose a restoration service based on price or distance from your home alone.
Compare apples to apples.
