The old man had been playing hot-rod again , according to the back of the photo , this had 3 Stromberg carbs on a 1958 Chevrolet V-8 [301 c.i.d.] , a Corvette 4 speed transmission ,a 4.ll rear end , Model A frame , Suicide front axle , A 1915 Studebaker body , Model A truck bed , and a 10 gallon jeep gas tank.

Just an after thought ... old man ,I wish more of these photos had the level of detail this one has ...

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
