Digital Imaging Touch-Ups

A quick shout-out to Miles Abernathy of 399Retouch.com. I sent him a photograph of my John Williams and wondered if he could do anything with it to spruce it up a bit. He did a great job, was inexpensive, and returned it to me quickly. The image on the left was the original. The image on the right is what he returned to me. (Click on the image to enlarge.) If you have a digital image that needs a little work beyond the basic retouching tools like Clone and Autofix, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this service.


My next quest is to learn what happened to John Williams' parents. Imagine this - John was born between 1845-1854 in New York City, the son of John Williams Sr., orphaned at the age of 10, and shifted around until he was 16, AND he enlisted in the Civil War under the name of Edward Riley. It's been a fun case and I'm making some real progress. I'll first tell our 2014 Legacy Genealogy cruisers about it (we leave in about 3 weeks...).

Anyways, more digital imaging techniques and organizing tips are found in the book, Digital Imaging Essentials: Techniques and Tips for Genealogists and Family Historians. Click here for more information or to purchase.
