Part 2 of the genealogist, Elizabeth Shown Mills’, Q&A with the public is now up at the NY Times.  Some of the questions answered are:

How to Identify Ancestral photos.

Do you recommend using genealogy-software templates for citing sources, or is it best to write them freeform?

Is there an accepted “standard” way of numbering ancestors when doing research?

How do I research Railroad Employees?

How to begin Indian (South Asian) research.

The best thing that I got from her answers was that has facial recognition software for your old unidentified photos!
