Owings sent me this wonderful old photo with the following note: Question: Any idea who the folks are on the attached? Somebody gave Dan a framed photo of my parents wedding -- he thinks he got it from my...

Who are these women and what are they doing here?

click picture to see larger image Hey we're snowed in and Bren hasn't had school for four days, so she's been cleaning closets and guess what she found? This wonderful newspaper picture from, I would guess, about 1959. Ok,...

Quiz 7 answers: Mom's diary and more

I believe this was taken at college. In any event, it's mother and friends and captures their spirit at about the time the diary was written. The inset in the upper right shows Sas White, Mom, and another friend whose name i can't make out.

The fun is in the clues

Between them Tom and Don correctly identified the pictures and Don reminded me of cats I had forgotten, except Queer. (He was called that because of his double paws and because some other kid had looked at the litter and said "I don't want that Queer!" That made us love him all the more. . . . No photographs this week - but a real mystery for many of you. I know the answer, of course, but if the rest of you make like the detectives on that new PBS series where they track down and authenticate family heirlooms and documents, well - I hope you can answer these questions.

Who, when and where?

Easy enough, right? So this week there won't be any clues. But we will double the reward money for anyone who can identify the cat in the top picture!

Whose Scout? What soldier? Which War?

Can you read it? I think I can make out the word "scout" but what is the first word? Who is this and when was this picture taken? And are there any active Scouts in your family today?

Quiz 3 revisted: Who, when, where and why

The response to this one surprised me a little, though I was glad Karen feels she would "marry the handsome guy in the tie and blue jacket in a flash." ;-) I thought the picture would be too easy, but there seemed to be some confusion, at least over the identity of the infant.

Quiz 3: Who, when, where, why?

Ok, those with good memories and sharp eyes should not only figure out who this is, but where the picture was taken, what month and year it was probably taken, and under what special circumstances. Share your thoughts – but before you do, call the youngest generation into the room. See if any of them can figure out who this is.

Quiz 2 answer - It's in the book!

The answer to Quiz 2 is in the book! The "Physician's Account Book," of course! My grandfather, Daniel Edwin Stone, was a country doctor. My grandmother, Elizabeth (Hammond Downey) Stone, seemed to think that an old account book would make a great scrapbook.

Family history Quiz 2: Who’s this?

Now, for this week we'll try something a little different - that is, our quiz doesn't come from a newspaper, but a family photograph. And the answer comes from the mother of the children shown and I have more confidence in her word than in the Baltimore Sun's. The question is simple. Who is in the photo?
