Society Saturday: Grandma’s Garage

The Stillaguamish Valley Genealogical Society Secretary, Michele Cozad, asks to bring your unknown photos to the society…

Ever come across a box of photos but they were not your family and you didn’t know what to do – they were perfectly preserved (taken in 1895-1900), taken by a photography studio in the middle of Kansas and there was only a couple of pictures identified as “Aunt Mary” or “Uncle Henry”… bring them to our own Mary Buzzell our Genealogist Chair. Mary identified one person by full name. SVGS volunteers found a “Leaf” on Ancestry and contacted the researcher – this was the Great Granddaughter! Obviously she was thrilled to find unknown photos of Aunt Mary & Uncle Henry and Great Grandpa….Thank you goes to the Arlington resident who recognized the value of long lost photos and the other SVGS volunteers who reunited the photos with direct descendants! A wonderful ending to box of “stuff” found in the back of a garage!
