    The Past is Present: Genealogy Photo Challenge for World Photography Day

    The Family Curator is issuing a challenge to geneabloggers, genealogists, and family historians! Celebrate genealogy and family history for World Photography Day August 19 by combining the past and present in a photograph. You might want to recreate an old photo or bring the past to the present day in DearPhotograph style.

    Post your photograph with descriptive caption on your blog and send the link to The Family Curator no later than 6am PST 15 Aug 2011. I will post a round-up article of contributions on or before August 19, World Photography Day.

    Get creative and have fun!

    Here's a few examples from past posts:

    Oh dear, this could be a challenge. Great idea, though!

    Great idea! I'll have to dig through my photos and see what I can come up with.

    came across your website...when doing a search on scanning/photo organizers info. You have a great site.

    I'm late for the entry...but here's my take on the dear picture.
    I call it "today's yesterday..."
    I'm currently scanning my family photos for a family archive and in order to get the younger family members interested in their heritage...I'm posting an old pic with a newer digital pic. It's quite fun!

    thanks for all the work on this site. it's a great resource. I'll be back : )
