Happy Birthday, Once Upon A Time!

Our Once Upon a Time feature turns three this week! Thank you to all of our wonderful members and Jewish Times subscribers for calling in week after week with the identifications of the people in the photographs.

And to answer the question that I am most frequently asked, YES! People do call in every week to identify the photos. In fact two-thirds of all of the photos have been at least partially identified through this JMM/Jewish Times collaboration.

The "answers" to the identifications are posted right here on the JMM blog and website. (Sometimes it does take a week or two to update.) The information is also added to our database to assist researchers in the future.

Interested in seeing more? Enter your search term (name, shul, club) into our on-line database and see what comes up. Or, make an appointment to come to the museum and view the photographs in person. Want to help identify photos on a regular basis? We need volunteers to help describe the photos in our collection. Contact Ilene Cohen, JMM Volunteer Coordinator, icohen@jewishmuseummd.org or 410-732-6400 ext. 217
