What is this Face Index?

This page is a sample of the new resources we can build with collaborative efforts. Many Lyakhovichi residents were photographed in group photos for their schools, businesses, and social activities. Others appear in the family photos of their adult siblings, and the candids taken as inexpensive cameras like the Brownie became popular in the first quarter of the twentieth century. Help us build this database by sharing your pictures.

Each of the photos below which was taken from a group or composite photo or from a more inclusive photo, remains the property of its copyright owners. Click on any image to go to a larger version.
