Elizabeth is a professional genealogist, writer, and consultant. Likes: long walks in the cemetery, and the smell of old courthouse books. Dislikes: people who copy stuff off the internet without giving credit, and county clerks who can't tell the difference between Eastern and Pacific time zones. Secretly hopes her daughter will one day develop an interest in family history (but no luck so far).

  1. That’s a nice old photo!

  2. There are so many dynamics in this picture from the girls to the ladies on the porch, the house. I love it.!

  3. They look like a fun group!

    (Although I wonder how they managed to keep those long white skirts clean in the days before washing machines and Oxy-Clean…)

  4. Thanks for your comments! I think it’s a pretty great picture, too. I *think* my grandmother is in the line-up somewhere, possibly 4th from the back.

    Kerry, that’s an excellent question. I imagine there was a lot of scrubbing on washboards, something my back could never handle today! Or maybe those dresses were their “Sunday Best,” reserved only for special occasions and photographs?
