Do you have any family pictures which you would like to know more about? Dress-historian, portrait specialist and photo detective Jayne Shrimpton is on hand to date your old family photos.

If you have any 18th, 19th or 20th century pictures, and are happy for Genes Reunited to share the image and findings, please scan and send a copy to with PHOTO in the subject.

Images used will be selected at random. Please scan the front and back of card-mounted photographs.

Could we ask that you do not post any original images.
