Genealogy in my basement
I’ve been trying to clean out our basement. What a mess! We’ve lived here five years and have accumulated sooo much! It’s crazy but I’m trying to whittle our possessions down. Less stacked in the basement means less to manage.
So in the course of this adventure I find some genealogy papers tucked away in a bottom drawer, not seen by the human eye in several years. Why would I have some Frueh family papers in the basement and not in their binder? Good question, of which I haven’t a clue. But I enjoyed looking through everything again, especially this photo. As you can see if you squint, my grandfather is in it, some of his siblings, as well as my dad and a couple of his brothers. Lots of extended family. My guess is that this photo was taken in 1937 just before my dad married my mom.
The reason I’m showing this to you is because some clever person identified the people in this photo. See the other paper with names and arrows? Thank you very clever person! I would never, ever have known who some of these folks were, but since you put a name to each face I could look them up on my pedigree charts. Yay for you clever person!
So I have now added another thing to my to-do list. I NEED to make sure All my pictures are labeled. All of them! Which means if I start now I’ll be done by my 112th birthday. How about you?
