  6. How fortunate for you that photos were taken and that they've been kept safe; a family trait? I wonder where they wore this finery. Last fall I began work on an online family ancestry site and someone had uploaded photographs of my very proper grandmother as a beautiful carefree looking young woman. I also found soldier photos of several handsome young soldier-forbears. It just blew me away.
