Essential books for the family historian, helpful with recognizing, preserving and telling the stories behind family photos.
An Ounce of Preservation

Collector's Guide to Early Photographs
Collector's Guide to Early Photographs
Dressed for the Photographer
Dressed for the Photographer : Ordinary Americans and Fashion, 1840-1900 (This book is very expensive and not always helpful for the beginner, some alternatives are: American Victorian Costume in Early Photographs by Priscilla Harris Dalrymple; Victorian and Edwardian Fashion : A Photographic Survey by Alison Gernsheim; and there is a book by a genealogical company with hundreds of photos to use for dating other photos by fashion, but I can't remember where I saw it. If you know of this book, please tell me.
To Our Children's Children
To Our Children's Children : Preserving Family Histories for Generations to Come (A good introduction to writing a family memoir, not specifically for heritage albums.)
