(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 121: Georgia (Kemp) Auble in 1898

I'm posting family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be wordless Wednesday posts like others do - I simply am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here is a photograph from the Carringer/Auble family collection handed down by my mother in the 1988 to 2002 time period:

This photograph is of my great-grandmother, Georgianna (Kemp) Auble (1868-1952), who married Charles Auble (1849-1916) in 1898 and was the mother of my grandmother, Emily Kemp (Auble) Carringer (1899-1977).

The photographic studio was Stevens in the McVickers Theatre Building in Chicago, Illinois.

The photograph was taken in about 1898, when Georgianna Kemp married Charles Auble.

I don't see an email address, so I suppose the comment feature is the best way to say that I've been enjoying perusing your blog! Especially since I share some ancestors with you: on my mother's side I descend from the mysterious John Kemp and Anna Van Vorst, and on my father's I descend from Anne Dudley Bradstreet and Simon Bradstreet.

I have a couple of ideas/questions that if you have time to explore in a blog post or point me to places where you have already explored this I would be very interested...

1. What did your tree look like when you were first starting genealogy, ie how many of your ancestors were known from records or memories kept by your own family?

2. What percentage of your ancestors in your tree were in previously published compilations, and what percentage were researched by yourself?

3. As you progressed through your genealogy research, who were the most exciting discoveries? And what was the biggest brick wall overcome? Do you feel a special kinship with any ancestors that were especially difficult to trace?

Obviously no need to write about all of these things, or any for that matter, just the topics I've been thinking about recently...
