Presenter: Maureen Taylor

Maureen Taylor, The Photo Detective is an internationally recognized expert on historic photograph identification and photo preservation. Sought out by clients all over the world from as far away as New Zealand, her pioneering work in historic photo research is unprecedented, evidenced by her success in solving photo mysteries.  The author of several books, scholarly articles and online columns, she has been featured in numerous publications including The Boston Globe, The New York Times, Better Homes and Gardens, and was dubbed “the nation’s foremost historical photo detective” by The Wall Street Journal.

Her focus is on helping people rediscover their family history one picture at a time, and is passionate about getting folks to dig deep into their family history to tell the story of their ancestors.  For more than a decade, she’s searched for images of individuals who lived during the Revolutionary War but also lived into the age of photography.  It’s currently a two-volume set titled, The Last Muster, and the quest for more photographs is ongoing. There is now a set of films, A Revolutionary Trio.
