Take a random picture and figure out ...

... who the people in the picture are (with help from the names on the back). That's what footnoteMaven has done in her post titled "Finding That Two Hundreth Edwardian Woman In A White Dress."

This is a marvelous genealogy work of love - these are not fM's ancestral families - just a picture that she obtained because she liked it.

It gives me the idea to do a similar task with the people that appear in my Della's Journal series from 1929 - to write a sketch for each person mentioned, defining at least their parents and children, their addresses, occupations, ages, etc.

Please go read the footnoteMaven's post and enjoy it.
