Flickr for Family Photos

I have been a Flickr user since 2005. I have more than 18,000 photos stored there. Every photo, every scanned document and even screenshots are automatically backed up to Flickr. I control who can see my photos and which remain private. I can easily share my photos both within Flickr (Flickr Groups are awesome!) or to Facebook, WordPress, Tumblr and by mail or message. At $50/year it is not only a fabulous backup service, it’s also a gorgeous platform to display my photos.

If that’s not enough . . . all my photos (except the ones I’ve set as private) are very searchable and have attracted a number of research cousins.

One of the many things that makes Flickr so useful to family historians is its searchability. Flickr offers a number of tools to organize your photos. You control who can see them, who can download them and what copyright licensing you want to give them. Your choices for these settings and others will determine their searchability.
