The OLD Old Days - Return home

About this site

This site is a library of photos and ephemera from some of my maternal ancestors from Western Ohio, mostly members of the Miller and Linn families, their neighbors, and friends. The items range from roughly the 1870s to about 1940.

The locations focus on Mercer County, Ohio, some Eastern Indiana locations, and cities & towns in Western Ohio including Dayton, Celina, and Lima.

I've tried to identify people in the photos as much as possible, but many are unknown. If you can identify someone I cannot, please contact me.

Using the site

On the technical side, I manually maintain the site with Notepad++ and occasionally Macromedia (yes, Macromedia) Dreamweaver—and with some very simple batch processing help from Photoshop and OpenOffice Calc. The site provides a good platform for me to try out new layout and coding techniques. There is no javascript, tracking cookies, search, tags, videos, Flash, or ads.

Enjoy your visit!
