A lesson for all of us regarding labeling our pictures. Perhaps some of you may be able to help Helen come up with ways to identify these people.
A recently discovered family picture with no one identified. We are working to identify these people!
Family pictures and portraits–don’t you love them!? A couple weeks ago, my sister found a small album, about 3″ x 5″, full of old family pictures! The picture above is one of those pictures! I love that picture, but who are those folks?! What a treasure! There were maybe 50 pictures–but only two were actually labeled as to who was in the picture!

Thanks o much Charles for reblogging this– and thanks greatly to all of you for the suggestions and shared experiences💕
