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.

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!
