As I suspected but has only been confirmed by one person, the girl on the far right is my grandma. I suspected this because when I looked at the picture I thought, holy shit, that is my forehead and brow. Anyway, my second cousin is going to ask her mom who is the daughter of one of these girls and confirm.
Some of you mentioned that you don’t have pictures of your family. When I started doing geneology about 10 years ago I only had a few. Actually, specifically 2 pictures. I have spent thousands of hours and went down hundreds of rabbit holes that led nowhere. I have researched 3rd cousins 4 times removed and found a lot of stuff that was pretty uninteresting like voting lists, lots and lots of voting lists. But then you hit gold like this one. The owner, a different second cousin than the one above, sent me an email on Ancestry then we became friends on Facebook then I got the picture of my grandma and her sisters. This picture is a result of a LOT of work.
On my dad’s side, I only had one picture of his dad. This was my grandfather.
As for his father, I am not even sure of his parents names or where he even came from. He just appeared one day and then left his wife, my great grandma, with 7 children to raise on her own, the fucking asshole. He went by the name Harry but I really don’t know if that was even true. But I continue to look and search archives and ship manifests. It is a labour of love. And sometimes a labour of disgust. Women in the 1920’s had no help from social services, child support, universal healthcare or woman’s housing. They just had to figure it out. My great grandma was a woman who got old before her time. I was named after her.
She was 52 here. She looks 80. That baby she is holding with the stunned look is me.
Anyway, of you ever start your search into your family history you will find these gems. And you will meet a lot of second and third cousins who will have photos.
