I have a lot of old family pictures that I have hung around my apartment. I really enjoy them. They look good and are good conversation starters. In this picture the old man is my great-grandfather. The kid on the far right is my dad. The girl behind him is his sister and all the others are cousins, so the old man is grandfather to all. I think this picture was taken in 1910.
… ‘the kid on their far right’ Hey, I’ve got the same kinda stuff … inherited it along with the family farm. Though the farm’s gone ..the photos aren’t. Having marked on the backs of each ‘who's who,’ back in my twenties when many were still alive, I intend to join the best online genealogy site I can find (could use any recommendations), scan, then post them!
Took some giant reprints to the 100th B-day party of a great-uncle, where relatives broke out in tears ..never having seen their Great or Great-great grandparents. Archive them as best you can, names, dates, locations… Seems it becomes the duty of we keepers
