Scottish local photos and postcards now on Flickr

We have begun uploading our collection of photographs and old postcards to Flickr. Most of these will be free to use as long as you attribute them to us.

We're doing this because we know how important it is to see where your ancestors lived and how they lived, I believe you need to see more than a list of names and dates. When we create our luxury books we source photographs and postcards to help you visualise the lives of your ancestors.

Our collection is Scottish and mainly the Borders and Dumfriesshire however we may stray out of our area from time to time. We are trying to geotag photos and by giving descriptive titles and appropriate tags we hope the whole world will be able to find them! We still need your help though; if you have a personal story about a place in one of our photos can you add it in a comment. We hope it will be a simple way to share a lot of history

Take a look at our collection: http://www.flickr.com/photos/maxwellancestry/collections/72157629222108089/
