Ontario Genealogical Society Heritage Photos

The OGS has started Heritage Photos: Trades and Professions: Farming this week on their site.

They say on the blog that “Over the past few months, we have searched out heritage photos that depict where and how our ancestors lived. Now we are going to use heritage photos to try to get a sense of the trades and profession our ancestors would have been involved in.

Our photo collection this week is all about Farming. Chances are you have at least one, if not several, farmers in your family tree.

Over the coming week, we are going to start the year off by looking at any photos that we can find of the trades and professions our ancestors may have been involved in.

If you have any trades or professions that you would like to suggest, and if we can find photos for them, that have no copyright issues of course, then let us know and we will see what we can find.

As always, if you have photos you would like to share, let us know”.
