Ellis Album, Photos 81 & 82 – Lydia & Herman


These lovely photos of this couple are part of a single sheet of images like this:



I am sooooooooo glad that great-grandma wrote this note on the back.  “Lydia lived in Shelley Idaho when she & I were small (Blanche)”.  Thank you, Great-Grandma Ellis, for those details!  I was so glad to know she wasn’t a relative and saved myself some tree digging.



This photo comes from the thirty-fifth page of the album.  Here are pages thirty-four and thirty-five to give context for this photo:

    1. Right?! It makes me want to get a bit more serious about the photos from my own lifetime. 😉

        1. Right?! I’m trying to a bit at a time. I love the FamilySeach app. Just last night I was looking at some photos and came across one that I LOVE of my little one and my Dad. I added that right to FamilySearch, tagged it, labeled it and felt great about preserving that sweet little memory. I know I have mounds to do, but each favorite photo saved feels like a small victory. 😉

  1. Amy is right of course, though I do rather enjoy the detective work unlabelled photos engender.
    Except when they are my photos — naturally. 😂😂

  2. I better get busy & label the photos that I haven’t previously done!! I am the youngest of the youngest & that isn’t too young anymore!!
