Hometown Delaware Needs Your Help

In 2006, the Delaware Public Archives launched a new program called the Hometown Delaware to enlist the public’s help in identifying individuals from the Archives’ vast collection of approximately 800,000 photographs. Most of the pictures date from the 1930s through the 1950s and include class photographs, athletic teams, bands, service organizations and a variety of individual and group shots. The project has traveled to different libraries throughout the state.

In 2009, the project went online on the Delaware Public Archives website. Since the project began, more than 2,000 Delawareans have been identified. In Milford, more than 450 individuals were identified in the photographs placed at the Milford Public Library.

Although this was a great start, the Archives is hoping that the readers of the Milford Review can assist in identifying more local citizens in these photographs from Milford’s past. Each individual is numbered for easy identification.

If you can identify one or more of the persons, please contact Archives staff member Lori Hatch, lori.hatch@state.de.us, (302) 744-5067 with the picture name, and the number and name of the individual. If you want to access all the photographs from the Hometown Delaware look on the Delaware Public Archives’ website at www.archives.delaware.gov
