Society seeks help in identifying photos of the past

The Mississippi Coast Historical and Genealogical Society has a collection of old photographs that are in need of new captions.

The society is asking people to bring their old photographs and see existing photos in Photo ID 2012, an event to help identify pictures from the past.

The free gathering will be Saturday from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Community Development Building, 676 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.

Pictures will be on display for people to identify the locations and subjects. Scanners will be available for those who want to share their photos with the historical society for preservation and use.

Refreshments will be provided.

Details: Julie Suarez at or (228) 263-1423, or Jane Shambra at (228) 435-4613.
