A New Photo Project

Photo Friday

Images of our ancestors make a wonderful addition to our family history. As such I decided I wanted to do a project to share more images. Not of my ancestors, but rather, people I don’t know. As a start, I took 8 photos, digitized them, and added information from the backs of the photos. I did a little research on the individuals to see if I could find them in Family Search. If I did, I uploaded a copy of the photo to the Memories section of the profile. People I found on Family Search included:

  • Mable Evelyn Bridges – West Brooklin, Maine – June 1919
  • Edna Dingley – Richmond, ME
  • Bernes O. Norton – Belfast, ME

Three of the images had enough information regarding them I felt it was appropriate to upload them to “Dead Fred.” They were:

  • Charles Lovering 510 Ohio Street, Bangor, ME – BHS Class of 1932
  • William B. Smith Jr., 43 Ratchford St., Quincy, MA – Rec’d July 18, 1935 (b. c.1919)
  • Perley Britt Wood – b. Feb. 13, 1886 – son of Charles & Margery Wood of Rockland Maine

Finally, two of the images didn’t seem appropriate for either site, because I couldn’t find the first name for either. They were:

  1. ___ ___ Hill – Belfast, ME
  2. “Nannie” Howe – 1831-1914 – Bath, Maine
    (This is probably Harriet A (Rush) Howse – Birth, Death, and Location match.)

People - Available  I uploaded all of the images to a new album on Flickr.

I will try to do more over the coming months. If you find a photo of your ancestor, please let me know.
