In many conversations that I have had with my friends the past few weeks, I've talked about three photographs that my grandfather gave me. He had been in the Korean War, and a man that he met there (I assume one of his friends) gave him pictures of his family. The pictures are very interesting, covered in a plastic protective sleeve. Although I had initially opened the genealogical trunk to find a different source, I was very happy to find and scan these. It has been a great relief to post them as "Unidentified Pictures" with the hope that someone will be able to see who they are and identify them!
Initially, I was looking for some pictures from World War I, but I was also keeping an eye out for this little beauty:
Charles and Edith White are my grandfather's paternal grandparents. I'm so glad that I found it (not that it was lost, mind you, but it was in a box…somewhere stacked away)! I think that the recoloring of the photograph is absolutely fascinating.
I love family history and the various ways that it can be approached by researchers! I hope that this blog is interesting and inspiring!
