    All of us can't show such good looking ancestors or such well preserved photos.

    Thank you mrmaj :-) That was so nice of you to comment . I was fortunate when my Grandmother passed she had gave me these years before so I had them to keep . She knew I would keep to pass along to next generations of family .

    When I have any image that is difficult to read, I open it in an image editing software and invert the colors. That makes the image look like a negative so print or writing stands out better. When you are finished just invert the colors again and everything goes back to normal. Give it a try you might find it useful.

    Thanks for the tip fhr ! I will try that . I can see it was taken in Moline IL and that is where some of the family moved to . 2 of my grandmothers sisters married brothers there :-)
