About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Donato Family

This is Joe Manning, the person who posted the photo. My wife is the daughter of Louis and Nancy Lowry Donato, the married couple. You can reach me through my website. My email address is posted at the bottom of each web page.

I'm looking for my cousins Donato from Sicily

I write from Palermo (Sicily) for news of relatives who I recognized in a photo inserted on "shorpy" from the joemmanning 12.1.2007 7:20 am "My wife's parents: Louis Donato and Nancy Lowry ".
If it's possible I would like contact the person who sent you the picture because Louis Donato (son of Donato Illuminated from Collesano Palermo) was my cousin and I would like know his children.
Thank you.
