Everyone from your oldest living relative to your mom can be a source. Show photos to family members; make and send copies to those you can't interview in person. Ask if they know any of the people in the photo. Do they know the time period? Where was the picture taken and why? Who was the photographer? Do they recognize anything in the background? Do they have any theories, no matter how uncertain, about the photo?
