When we turn our hearts to our ancestors, something changes inside of us. We feel part of something greater than ourselves~Russell M. Nelson

Oops,They Did it Again!

  There are many times in the research process  you to wish that your ancestors had been genealogists or had the forethought to do things that would make your searching easier.
 One of the biggest Oops that frustrates me is having pictures with no label on them. The discovery of a box of photos is a joy until you realize that you don't know who those people from long ago are.
   Here are two that I have been wondering about. Because of who had them and the time period of each , these may be  pictures of my paternal Great Grandfather John McSwain Hudson (1880-1961). There is no one  that I know of at this time that would be able to recognize him nor have I ever seen another picture of him.

My father remembers his Grandfather as an old man and isn't sure about who these younger men may be.

  Are they of the same man? Is this my Great Grandfather John? 
 Oops, they did it again, played with my heart and forgot to label a picture!

  1. So, frustrating! My recent find includes many photo Oops; unlabeled, mislabeled and illegible handwriting. Just wish that I had known about these treasures when there were still people to ask who might have remembered!
