Family Photos, Geneology Are
Mysteries Waiting To Be Solved
At a recent garage sale in Cooperstown, I purchased an old frame with a woman’s photo in it. Not known to the seller, he said to me, “instant relative.” As I returned home, I got to wondering about the woman and her story, which of course has been lost to time. She is part of the “unknowns,” and our historical society, like many others, has numerous photos of people who, like her, are in limbo from lack of identification.
