Join me for my second Ask Maureen Taylor Teleseminar. Next Tuesday, I will be answering the following questions:

Focus on Daguerreotypes:

What is a daguerreotype?
What does it look like?
How is it made?
How to scan one?
What to do about storage?
Is there a way to repair daguerreotype cases and remove the pockmarked glass?

Other questions

How to keep up with storage media—we’ve had floppies, CD’s and thumb drives. What’s the best method?

I have a photo of a gravestone and I cannot read the inscription. Is there a process (software) available to sharpen the image?

To listen in on the free call, please visit and submit a question to be answered in a future call.

Ask Maureen sessions will be held on the 2nd Tuesday of every month. Always free and begin promptly at 1:00pm (ET) / 10:00am (PT).
