Today I received a reply for the Banta/Simmons photos I have been researching for the society. The person who replied was a direct descendant. I am thrilled! I still have "loose" photos to inventory for the Lost Treasures department.
I am waiting for an appraisal for some other photos that the society may or may not keep.
I am looking forward to going to the So Cal Genealogical Society's Jamboree in Burbank at the end of next week. Last year I learned some really good techniques for researching old photos that I applied to my work for the Lost Treasures Committee.
I am also trying to work on a Lost Treasures portion of the SDGS website using Net Objects Fusion.
