I have heard Maureen Taylor speak several times. She is the international expert on identifying old photographs. Her genealogy and research skills are just as sharp so she is able to pull it all together to convey the importance of each aspect in her talks. She is a speaker not to be missed.

I enjoyed your talk because you made it very interesting while sharing an enormous amount of valuable information. It still surprises me what I notice now in photographs that I didn't notice before!

I had the pleasure of hearing Maureen present two talks at this conference. The first one was "Identifying and Dating Family Photographs" and the second "Hairsteria: Hair in the Family".

Knowledgeable, organized and articulate, Maureen captivated her audience with photographic history and the typical questions one would ask when identifying a photo whether by clothing, hairstyle or other means. I very much enjoyed her talks. The sessions were well attended and the audience appreciative.
