This is a long-standing mystery that maybe the Instagrams might be able to solve. We found this ring in grandpa's office after he passed away in a little box with two pocket watches (a man's and a woman's) as well as a small pocket knife. His grandparents were from England, and I've long suspected that this may have been his grandma's wedding band. The design is very nearly worn flat and there are cracks in the gold. The marks seem to indicate that it was made in Sheffield (the crown, specifically, is used by Sheffield silversmiths from what I can find), but I can't seem to find any sort of data on goldsmith marks since the Sheffield assay office didn't deal with gold till 1904. His grandparents were married in 1891 in PA, so if that's the working assumption, I'd assume that year or earlier if the ring was passed down from a parent. I'd love to hear from anyone who happens to be a better Google sleuth, or someone who may, on the off chance, know a few things about silver/gold markings in England!

Sometime in the 1930s Salt Lake City, Utah near 33rd & Highland. ⠀
Me: So dad, what can you tell me about this?⠀
Dad: That's the Old Chevrolet! I think that is me peeking out the window. ⠀
Me: That is you. Do you know the model or year of the car?⠀
Dad: Nope. I can almost remember the sign over there....Highland Drive sure doesn't look like that anymore. ⠀

Jestem coraz bliżej odkrycia tajemnic związanych z moją gdańską/pomorską rodziną. Historia jest tak niesamowita, jak scenariusz filmu. Trudne losy Pomorza jak na dłoni: jest i organizator obrony Poczty Polskiej w Wolnym Mieście, i żołnierz polskiej armii, i siłą wcieleni do Wehrmachtu, i Polka zakochana w Niemcu... wielu rzeczy nie uda mi się już poskładać, ale może zdam się na wyobraźnię i kiedyś to wszystko opiszę... #history #oldphoto #oldphotograph #30s #gdansk #vintage #vintagephoto #genealogy #familyhistory #family

#genealogyphotoaday 4. Letter / Carta. Colunga, 1927. Carta postal que le envió la hermana de mi tatarabuelo, Primitiva, a mi tatarabuela María "por su santo", no sé por qué: María nació un 14 de septiembre y la carta es del 19 de marzo... que es San José. En ella, Primitiva y su marido Manuel invitaban a María, y a quien quisiera, a visitarles en si casa de Colunga. Fue un matrimonio que no tuvo hijos. Ella murió veinte años después, tras haber sido atropellada por una bicicleta. Él no pudo soportarlo y se quitó la vida poco más tarde. Afortunadamente no sabían de sus destinos en 1927, cuando ella escribió estas líneas. #genealogy #genealogia #asturies

I so much wish I knew who this little boy is. His picture is on a tintype so it was probably printed in the 1860s/1870s but even that is a guess. He was discovered amongst my paternal grandmother’s possessions so I assume he belongs to either the McAuleys or the Dunlaps but again, a guess.

This is reason 1,593 of why I do what I do. Identify your photos, find out more about that person. I can guarantee they have more to tell you then just what you see smiling back at you. I can help.

Today I got to go through some old family pictures that were in this trunk my grandma dropped off. What fun things have you found when going through old family stuff?
She sent it with me because she thought it was full of fabric & wanted me to take what I wanted. Instead it was full of family photos, a ceramic art piece my dad had made when he was in school & fun other treasures. I of course called her and it will be going back to her to go through, but it was fun to go through.
