    1. i'm very lucky to have the photos, they help create interest and they certainly give us a hint of the world that they came from.

  2. I agree with Anne. I too appreciate it when citations are included. You put loads of work into this post. I just give the basics unless it is a special post like an assignment that needs proper citations. Usually the full name and year of birth. I hope you attract some "cousins" with all this detail.

    1. Thanks Fran for dropping by. Putting in all the details creates a back up of sorts and helps to share what I know. Recently I know of several fellow researchers who have passed on and so has their research which is very sad. At least this way some of it will live beyond me.

  3. How wonderful that you have all these photos. I asked my sister on Sunday to bring over all my mother's old photos next time she comes and she says she will if she hasn't thrown them out. Grrrr. What was she thinking if she did???

    1. Hmm perhaps she wasn't thinking. I hope you manage to scan them. Perhaps you shouldn't wait, just go and visit her.
