Contemporary Fashion through the Decades – How to Identify Our Ancestors’ Timelines by What They Wore

A visual review of clothing styles and historical influences unique to each period – late 1700s through mid-1900s. Learn how to identify the year that your ancestor wore the clothing and determine their dates. Bring photographs, pictures, or historic clothing for me to analyze afterwards, if you wish. ​
