One of my favorite parts about doing genealogy is finding photographs of my ancestors and the places they lived. Once I find a photo of an ancestor it makes their research more personal. I can actually picture what the person looked like and get a little idea of what kind of person they were.
During Lisa Louise Cooke's live recording of the Genealogy Gems Podcast she interviewed Maureen Taylor, The Photo Detective. Maureen talked about her new book The Last Muster: Images of the Revolutionary War Generation. The book contains images she collected of people who lived during the Revolutionary War period along with stories of their lives durin that period.
I am excited to read this book because I have always been interested in learning more about the various wars and the people who served. After I finish the book I'll have to give a review. The book is not yet available for sale but you can pre-order it on Amazon right now. For those here at Jamboree, you are lucky enough to actually buy the book here at the conference. The book is for sale at the NEHGS booth, is if you're lucky Maureen will even sign the book for you. She is at the Family Tree Magazine booth.
