The FaceIndex, is the quintessential collaborative project. We need your photos including the group photos in which your ancestors and relatives appear. This is a work-in-progress and each successive version will offer more photos and more details in the caption. As we go to press in May 2008, we have around three hundred images on the three pages that we have so far finished. But that is really a drop in the bucket. If we have a family of fifty adults named Epstein between 1870s and 1930s, it is highly unlikely that one photograph represents all of the still available resources. Help us build this valuable research tool!

We have more pictures for this page. Check back soon. Let us know the ones you have to share and the ones you are searching for!
