Old Family Photos Questionnaire

I have been given permission to post this request for help on my blog.


Questionnaire about Old Family Photos in Family History Research

You are invited to complete a questionnaire which forms part of my dissertation research for my MSc in Information Management. I am interested in researching my own family history and particularly intrigued by the Victorian photo albums in our family. This has motivated me to find out more about the information needs and behaviours of family historians with special regard to old family photos (c.1840-c.1901).

This questionnaire explores various aspects of the importance of old family photos to your family history research, questions about identifying and labelling old photos, and about storing both original and digital versions of these photos. To read more about the questionnaire and then access it, please visit:

Additionally, I also need to interview people about this topic. If you live near Sheffield, UK and would be willing to participate, please contact me via to find out what it entails. It does not matter whether you choose to complete the survey as well or not, although if you do, please leave your contact details at the end of the survey even if you have emailed me separately.Thank you for any help you can give.
Any questions can be addressed to me:

Fiona Wilson
MSc Information Management Student

If you have a few minutes, please go take Fiona's survey and help her out.
