New “Old” Photos Added

Some progress has been made on the genealogy front with the addition of  new ‘old’ photos to the Photo Gallery. For those of you that are not aware of this feature you can click on the words “Photo Gallery” in the menu at the top of any of the website pages, in this case the Blog page. That will take you to the website location where all the photos are stored. There are Madden photos as well as Genealogy photos. As with the blog and website in general it is a dynamic site, that is the photos may change a bit over time, if I do some cataloging or adjustments to the pictures.

As I’ve mentioned before I got many photos from family that I’ve scanned and begun organizing. In some cases I’m not really sure who the family is in the picture, with that I’d like some help and feedback. Also some of the photos seen in this post may not (or may) be seen in the Photo Gallery yet.

In this case I know who this is in the photo below. I always have a warm feeling looking at old pics. Where the picture was taken I’m not sure.

Another photo I like is:

These folks I know. Unfortunately Aunt Muriel (Gale) is absent.

This one above is of course my Grandfather Frank, my Dad’s dad. I’m not sure who the young girl is.

I’ll put a few more in a collage below. Just click on the photos to enlarge.

This was only a fraction of the photos I’ve scanned. I will continue to add and update. I should also add I’ve been spending quite a bit of time on updating the family tree which includes Sklapsky, Reeves, Olsen and a number of others. I’m not sure how wide I’ll go at this time. This research is done and recorded online on a site called Ancestry.ca. I’m not sure at this time how visible the site is to those who aren’t members of Ancestry.ca. I’ll look into making it more widely visible.

As always any comments are appreciated.

  1. Now that I’ve enlarge the photos using my own program, I still don’t recognize the woman but I think that’s your dad, Dallas, behind the lamp. Makes more sense him being there than George I guess.

  2. Wonderful photos, Dwayne. The photo of Grandma and Aunt Eleanor was probably taken at the Renshaws, it looks like the way I remember the side of their house and yard. The young girl with Grandpa Sklapsky is most likely Stacey Marki Battryn, those look like Lou & Karl’s drapes. In the photo in the collage, the one with Lou, Reg and Muriel, I don’t know who the woman in the background is but that sure looks like Uncle George Sklapsky hiding behind the pole lamp between mom and dad. I’ve been checking sklapsky.ca and following your blog, just enjoying them both verymuch.
