I'm new to WikiTree and excited to begin adding both traditional geneology and dna-based information. I have no children, and so it is important to me to add the knowledge I have about my family's branch of the tree in order to both add to the overall knowledge on the tree and to make some sort of ongoing record of members of my family who might otherwise be lost to time.
Included in some of the material that I have is a stack of black and white negatives going back to the 1920s or so. Photography is a hobby of mine, and I enjoy creating wet-scans of the negatives and maximizing the quality of the resulting images. They focus on my father's nuclear family, and my grandfather is shown here. It's exciting to think that long after I'm gone, this lovely photo—taken by my grandmother—will carry on his image here on WikiTree. More to come.
If those of you who are more experienced on WikiTree have thoughts about the value of these types of photos, or any suggestions/guidelines, I'm all ears (well, eyes).
PS: I'm a bit unsure about the date and location of this photo. While my father's family lived mostly in the Detroit area, there was a brief time when they lived in Arizona. My grandfather was younger at that time, but this may be on a return trip there. If you spot something that suggests the location is somewhere else, I'd be thankful for the tip.
I wanted to share this family photo of Unknown McDougall with the community. Location: Arizona. Date: 1950.
