I wanted to share this family photo of William Pugh with the community. Location: Rochester, New York, United States. Date: Feb 1915.

For many years my research of my family failed to take me "across the pond" to England where the name Pugh is very common. Then one day I was contacted by Gavin Pugh, a direct ascendant of William Pugh's father. Gavin shared this image with me and told me it filled in a gap in their family history about the one brother who disappeared in America. You can see by looking at the caption that this scan was like a Rosetta Stone to my heritage. Suddenly my paternal family blossomed from only my descendants to hundreds if not thousands of relatives. I'm anxiously waiting on the results of Gavin's Y-DNA testing to confirm our blood relationship.

That is a good photo - an employee magazine has helped with a link to an ancestor. Interestingly he had a good career with the railroad.
