Query: Olt Family from Dayton, Ohio (NEW)
My daughter married into the OLT family from Dayton OH. In an old house they are remodeling she has found trunks in the attic with lots of OLT info. I have several picture albums with photo. Some ID, some not. Is there anyone there that maybe could help us with these photo ID’s we would gladly share a digital copy.
Query: Seeking Copy Photo Advise - Rcvd: 18 Apr 2019
I am copying a good deal of information on paper by photocopying, using a camera and copy stand.
I would like to learn the best method(s) for lighting the material which is laying flat on the copy stand. Currently, I am relying on light from a northern window, but would like supplemental lighting for gray days and evenings. I have some small spots with 5,000K bulbs that came with a cheap photo/light tent. They do not put out enough light and brighter lights would require diffusers. Are LEDs better than incandescent bulbs?
Query: HERSHKOWITZ, HERSH - Rcvd: 23 Mar 2019
As the family genealogist, I heard that in the early 1900's my great grandfather, Jacob Hershkowitz (name was shorted to Hersh, but not sure of the time) was arrested for allegedly stealing merchandise from one of the railroad cars in Dayton.
I have not been able to document this from research on the internet so am hoping you might have access to other sources for me. I was told that he had a lawyer who got him off as the judge ordered Jacob and his family to get out of Dayton ASAP.
Any assistance you can provide me is greatly appreciated.
Thank you in Advance,
