About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Hollingsworth Family Portrait 1893

Hollingsworth Family Portrait 1893

This is a portrait of my great, great grandparents D.P. & Sarah Hollingsworth with their children Hester (standing on the right) and Richard (on the lap). Richard is my great grandfather. View full size.

Love your hollingsworth photo

Your GG Grandfather, Richard, is a cousin. You and I share Elias Hollingsworth and Hester Ann Palmer as grandparents.

I'm looking for information about Elias and Hester. I lose track of them after 1885.

I think I've discovered Hester's family and am now trying to confirm my theories. Any info you have of the family would be terrific.

I have photos of Augusta - David P's sister, my great grandmother.

I do love your photo, though.

Hello Cousin

After some research in my family tree, D.P. (David Palmer) is my third cousin, five times removed. My grandmother descended from George Hollingsworth (1712-1786) as well, but via different children.

Send me an email and we can trade info!
