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. It looks like he’s not so much playing with the dolls as teasing someone about the dolls. Great photo!

  2. I thought so too, Nancy… probably a sister or cousin. I also thought he was making a not-so-nice hand gesture, but on closer examination, it looks like he’s pointing with his index finger, maybe at a dimple or something on the doll’s face. Whew!

  3. Do you know who the guy is? He looks like he could just be pointing to the doll. Maybe he kidnapped them and is holding them for ransom.

  4. @Kristin, I’m pretty sure the “guy” is my father’s uncle, which would make him my grandfather’s brother. I think. He’s probably tormenting a sister. :-)

  5. Great photo! He looks like a character. (I think that I feel sympathy for his sisters–though they may be equally adept at tormenting him.)
