    Lin, you are sooooooo right! I have a very old pic of a family of sharecropper’s, standing in front of a very tall 2-story house, which would be a nice old pic of a young couple with 2 small children, and an old man with a long, white beard. I’m assuming that it was the grandmother who took the pic. Nice old pic, but basically meaningless without any info. Thankfully, my Mom must have been visiting where her dad grew up, so on the back, she wrote that the pic was taken in 1910, and the house and land belonged to my great-grandfather, near Cisco, TX, and that he had homesteaded the farm in 1891, after leaving Georgia. Now I have LOTS of info, and even though the people mean nothing to our family, the pic is all about our family, with names of places and dates. You’re so right about writing pertinent info on the backs of pix. It makes all the difference……………

    I think of the old family pics that get dumped because later, no one knows anyone. Put names and dates on them everytime for future folks who want to know, who’s that?
