If she finds a candidate family in the 1900 census, she can look for the same family in the 1895 Iowa state census and the 1880 US census (remember, the 1890 census has been lost).Of course, it's possible that not all of this family's children are present in the picture and/or spouses are shown, so Barbara can broaden her search to households that are close but don't exactly match. Then she can see if the family overlaps with her family history.Using this broad approach, with an emphasis on dating old fashions, she successfully determines an accurate and usually close date range for family photographs and artworks and can often suggest the occasion that inspired their creation - an engagement, wedding, 'breeching', 'coming of age', 21st or landmark birthday, new job, wedding anniversary or mourning.Old photographs from the UK feature significantly, yet Jayne has worked on pictures originating all over the world, from Ireland to the United States, Canada to Brazil, Russia to Australia, France to India and will do her best to help with all international inquiries.There were no names on the back, and no one else in the family recognizes the people shown.
