I have a few unmarked photos to share over the next few days.  I hope someone comes along some day and connects all the dots for these photos.
Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again.

I declared these photos Full Circle 98 on December 4, 2014

  1. I remember neighbor ladies, Nora and Dora, wearing shoes like the lady in the 1st photo.

  2. Could that surname in the anniversary picture be Wilson? Of course, the fading ink doesn't help much...but the way the "i" comes off the initial letter makes me wonder...

    Not that searching for Wilson makes things any easier :(

    1. It could be Wilson. I am also thinking maybe Nilson:)

    2. If I had to bet, I would go with Wilson. The county that Clara Crozier and Edna St. Clair came from (Guernsey, Ohio) was practically founded by "Wilson's". The family tree has about 10 "Williams" in it - so I'm flummoxed as to which one this "might" be.

      The power finally came on. I'm thawing out now. :)

  3. I think "Herbie Light" might have been Herbert M Light Jr. (or even III). He lived in the Long Beach, LA area in the 1950-60s.

    http://www.ameshistory.org/vets/ww2_vets_l/light_herbert_m_jr.htm shows his "roots".

  5. Hello, I am Jimrie Light, and have started to try to piece together my heritage. That is me in the picture with Herbie, who I don't even know, but am going to assume is my grandfather? How can I find out more information?

  6. Hello ... just wanted to update further ... Hilson? That is Hilton ... My mother's step mom Louise Camacho is family to the Hiltons.
