  1. I was wondering how could someone get to view the pictures if they live out of state? I am from Worcester and would love to see them all.

  2. Hi and thanks so much for contacting us. Because we need to control the images–and they are so easy to rip off on the internet, even with heavy watermarking–we are being careful about putting images online. We want to do an exhibit of these images, so we cannot at distribute them widely at this point. As the article notes, we are in the research stage of this project and are hoping to contact descendants of those pictured. You can see a list of the names of people currently identified here at this blog (on the left-hand side of the home page: click on “List of People in the Glass Negatives”) If you believe that you are a descendant of any of the people listed, please let us know and we would love to talk with you and show you what we have. Thanks again for your interest in this project. We are very much looking forward to sharing the photos in a future exhibit to all interested people.

  3. Hi my family names are listed Anderson Sawyer and Upsher. I was born In worchester and raised there until 1940. I have an aunt who would have a better knowledge of first names but the last names and name of child Margaret are my family members. I would love to see the pictures if possible. Please get back to me as I am very interested about this story.

  4. Hi, Doris. This is great news! We have had an especially hard time finding out much about the Sawyer and Upsher families. I am following up with an email to you now to make arrangements to meet. Thanks so much for contacting us!

  5. I think this a grrat thing your doing. My ancestors are among your list the Clark family from Dover Street I would like to speak to you more about it and would love to see the photos.
