My friend, Jim Derheim has launched an archive of his photos online at www.europeanfocus.com. To see his work, click on the tab that says “Ancestral Villages Photography” (illustration below). It is visible at the upper right side of the page.
Since the site is a work in progress, there is also a full list of towns that Jim has photographed, most of which are not yet scanned. Go to: http://www.europeanfocus.com/europe/photos/ancestor-village-photos.html
On the right side of the page is a column titled: European Village Photo Archives.” Click on your country of interest. Following are direct links:
- Czech Republic
- Holland / Netherlands
- Ireland (Republic of)
- Italy and Sicily
- Luxembourg (Duchy of)
Jim is scanning and adding adding images every day. It’s his goal to eventually have representative images of all of the more than 2,500 locations that he has photographed since 1990 in the online Archives.
