    Sent to me from Sweden from a lawyer from my cousins estate-- She must have kept this c.1900 photo, and wrote my name on the back, but not WHO these are.. The little boy, coloring a facial features looks like my mother's baby photo. So maybe they belong--My cousin wanted me to have it--but maybe she didn't have a clue either.
    It is really so important to go thru all your photos and name them if you can...-- You may be the last living person who is able to name who is in vintage photos!! I have done it, so things like this will not happen. Your survivors will be so happy you did that for them. Especially those future family geneologists.

      Not half an hour ago, I was just thinking, "Why don't people write what a photo is of, on the photo or frame?"

      When writing on photos, write on the back-- of course-- in a corner, in pencil or light pen so it does not impress on the actual photo or bleed through.

      Sadly I will be deprived of ever knowing for sure if these are in my gene pool even tho sent to me thru a cousin thru her lawyer at the time of her death. The photo is from Sweden where my grandparents were from.If it was only signed? A simple stroke of pen could have saved them from obscurity. Sad.
