Photographs are as much a part of genealogy as the numerous records we dig through looking for hints about our ancestors. Through pictures, we can put a face to a name and, in a sense, bring to life a person we knew only as a name.
Chances are, you will come across relatives or other individuals who hold photographs of your ancestors. A few will be generous enough to let you have them; others will not. One way to get the picture for yourself without the other person having to give it up is by scanning it onto your computer and then having them printed.
The cost of printing these photographs can get high if you have a large number. Thankfully, there is a way to lower the impact on your wallet. Today's free genealogy resources are photo printing sites that offer free prints. Your only cost is shipping.
