Recent events as in moving from one place to another (are genealogists really hoarders?) led to sifting through piles and miles of photographs to scan. My mother as an only child had been the subject of oodles of proud-parent photos, many of them studio-taken to send to relatives in the old country. As time went on, friends and others took over. Plus, sidewalk photos used to be a thing. Said photos were scattered around various old albums and otherwise loose amongst miscellaneous stacks of chaotic proportions.
It's called playing around before I get serious again. What I've assembled is easier with female ancestors, and obviously only if enough photographs are available. It also helped that her mother was a seamstress.
For the kids and grandkids who never knew Grandma Clare.
