GREENFIELD — Want to know whether that skinny young man with the cocky smile in the dog-eared photo is Grandpa?

“Our ears grow, but they don’t change,” said Joan Hostetler, a photo preservationist and archive specialist from Indianapolis. “Our ear lobes stay the same.”
Hostetler presents a free seminar Wednesday at Hancock County Public Library’s central location detailing techniques for dating and interpreting old pictures.
