Do you own any old pictures that were taken of famous people, taken at historic events, or snapshots of groups or individuals being honored for something special? Please forward scans or other electronic copies. A clear digital photo of the old documents works nicely too.
The Shoot ‘Em Up project also aims to collect and exhibit the names of those honored for just about anything, including plaques on walls and building faces, monuments, and inscriptions found anywhere. Names engraved or on plaques at the police department, fire department, schools, churches, clubs, at the lodge or anywhere individuals were recognized. Any old group photographs complete with names. Old bulletins, leaflets, books, booklets, pamphlets are also welcome but must include the cover and the copyright page so that we can obtain permission to use them. Any publication submitted must be dated in some way, and should be of antiquity. Shoot it with your camera, your phone; It doesn’t matter as long as the names are legible. If you don’t see anything like this on any regular basis and want to join the fun, do a cemetery drive-by and capture a few headstones. Show that you’re outgoing and drive through rattling off a handful of pictures.
All pictures submitted must include the location, anything additional you can tell us about the picture and a date taken. Be as specific as possible. Capture the entire inscription so that we know what the names are being displayed for.
Correspondence should be sent to “shootem” at geneosity.com
Please forward electronic files to the email address with the descriptions and other information and we will post it to the site as soon as possible.
