Earlier this year, my cousin Gregg mailed me a box of photos from our shared Scottish line. Most were unlabeled. A few had descriptions. All had notes of some kind or other from Gregg.
The very first photo in the box included my great-grandmother and Gregg’s aunt, Mary Brown Young. I was so delighted to be greeted by her face when I opened this treasure box! As I looked through all of the photos and letters I was excited by the project Gregg had sent my way.
I scanned everything front and back. I made a backup file. And slowly, I have been working my way through these images.
So far I have identified and shared four images. But I have lots more to do! I have a handful of images I am currently working on identifying. I have several that are very puzzling, a few more that are labeled, and some that I hope cousins can help me with. I decided this project deserved its own series title. So this will serve as my introductory post despite the fact that I have already shared a few of the photos from the box.
I love the challenge an unlabeled photo presents, but a whole box full?! This is going to be lots of fun!
