Dating Old Military Photos Project

NOTE from DearMYRTLE: Thanks to Craig Scott, MA, CG for forwarding this information about a new Family Chronicle publication. Please address all inquiries to

"Family Chronicle, in conjunction with our sister publications Internet Genealogy and Discovering Family History, is looking for old military uniform photographs of your ancestors for a tentative book (similar to our bestselling Dating Old Photographs series).

If you have photos you would like to submit, and they were taken between the Mexican-American War and the end of World War One, we want to hear from you!

  • Please do not send images from World War Two.
  • Please note: The picture doesn't have to depict an American soldier.
  • Please note: Include as much pertinent data as possible: subject’s name, regiment, unit, conflict, etc.
  • We are unable to date/identify unknown subjects and these will not be used.

We will credit all photos used and send two copies of the publication to each person whose photos we use.

  • Do not send images where the date, conflict, regiment or army has to be guessed or is unknown.
  • Please do not send us original photos, as they will not be returned.
  • Copies made on a color photocopier are okay.
  • If you have access to a scanner, you can send us a CD/disk (PC format) or attach an image file (JPEG, 200 dpi or higher, no more than three attachments) via e-mail (preferred).
  • More than one e-mail is acceptable.

Please include complete name and address of sender with e-mail or mail-in submissions. E-mail photos to

Alternately, mail photos to:
