Welcome to our Photo Gallery, where you’ll find scores of historical photos transformed in color by American Colorizing. These photos are grouped by decade for  easy locating. Our collection covers the 1840s thru the 1970s, the years where black & white images have traditionally told our ancestors’ stories. Now those images have a companion – Colorized versions that enhance the experience of viewing history. And that is how we present the images in our photo gallery – Black & White photos positioned side by side with their colorized counterparts.

 We Don’t Live In A Black & White World . . . Neither Did They!
You Are
About To Come Face To Face With Your Ancestors.
