CAMILLA WARREN-MAJOR CONTRIBUTOR AND OPOAA FOUNDERI Starting research on my family tree in early 1999, and one of the things I was most excited about, were all the Old Photographs. Many of the photographs I obtained were from relatives and friends. Some of the people I knew, and most I didn't.
THE OLD PHOTOGRAPH BELOW INSPIRED OPOAA:
After comparing the two images below, we believe the man sitting in the chair is our great great grandfather, and the other subjects in the photograph are still unknown. The 2nd photograph is of our grandfather.
We will continue to provide these old photographs for your research, when posted by our visitors. Our contribution to the African American Researcher.

Doing research finds its way from the smallest of things you thought wouldn't be relevant.
