In the last few months I have been attempting to sort out the large mess that has become my genealogy files and create an organized workspace for my research. I’m a bit of a perfectionist about certain things – sometimes to the point of over complicating things that should be much easier. Right now my workspace looks much like it did on the day I started… the only difference being that everything inside my file boxes have been scanned and placed in the appropriate folders. Needless to say, my project is moving very slowly. It is moving though, so I’m attempting not to be too hard on myself about the amount of time it is taking me to reorganize.
As I scanned everything in my file boxes – I ran into three photos of individuals I just can’t seem to place within my tree. I checked every family tree that I am currently working on to see if I had uploaded the photos to a particular individual at any point in time and saw that I hadn’t. I thought I’d share the photos with all of you today. Who knows – maybe someone out there will be able to help me figure out who the individuals are.
The above photo is a reprint. I must have downloaded it and had a copy printed at some point. I searched diligently trying to place a name to that sweet face, but the photo has never been uploaded to my Ancestry account nor was an email saved that would explain how/where it came into my possession. Unfortunately, my last computer crashed… so any notes I took on the photo or where it came from have been lost.
This cute little boy was tucked into the paper frame holding the picture below… suggesting that they are the same person. Writing on the back of the photo says: ‘Believed to be George Rogers.’
The above photo is held inside a paper frame imprinted with a logo from a Fayetteville photography company that went out of business long ago. The photos came into my possession when a large portion of family photos were handed down into my care. Unfortunately, there is no explanation of who the individual in the photo is or how he is related to my family. I believe the photo is connected to the Clark/Lewis line from Fayetteville, North Carolina.
For now these are the only photos in my possession that cannot be linked to anyone in my tree. They have been carefully placed on my cork board to serve as a reminder to try to figure out who they are. If anyone has any information that may lead to my being able to link these faces to a name in my tree… I would be sincerely grateful for your help. I can be contacted at: email@example.com
