As well as genealogy, another passion of mine is researching the history of photography, especially the lives of early photographers that worked in Australia. David Mattison has set up an excellent website covering the photographers of British Columbia which may assist in the dating and identification of photographs from this county (Marcel - msafier@ozemail.com.au)
