Thanks so much for stopping by!

Helping you climb your family tree,


  1. What a beautiful photograph and what a beautiful young lady. I love everything about it, from her hair (Look at that hair!) to her facial expression to her plaid waist with the gathered shoulders. This is one of those photographs that makes me wonder what happened in the minutes before and after the photo was taken. I see just the hint of a smile and wonder if she'd been laughing and became serious for the fleeting second the shutter snapped, or if she broke into laughter immediately after the photo was taken.

    1. I agree. This in one if my favorite photos! Thanks for taking the time to read and leave a comment, Nancy!
