This winter I am working on Far Guys Family History..the Paternal side.
Years ago Uncle Jimmy gave our daughter Jennifer an old family photo.
Here I have made a copy of it and taken it into my scrapbook program and identified everyone. There is more than one way to skin a cat nowadays..and more ways to mark group family photos without marking up the original.
Xaver and Christiane are his Great Great Grandparents and Martha Jane off to the right is his Great Grandmother.
I found a few photos that I cannot identify.
This is an old tintype. It is marked Aleck girls! Which ones? There are six sisters. It is a lovely tintype. It looks to be taken sometime in the 1880’s. Ladies dresses were often severe and tight fitting, might have a bustle, skirts often had pleated edges. Hair plain and pulled back, high white collars , lots of buttons in rows.
Martha Jane was born in 1868. If she were 17 in this photo the year would be..1885. I think she is the gal standing on the left, but I will probably never know for sure.
Mark your photos..do your relatives down the line a big favor:)
