The Editor's Corner


Two years ago, after my cousin Lillian died (Lillian Louise McAninch, b.1932, d.2004, in Arizona),

a tattered old ‘shoe box’ full of old photographs and other family memorabilia came to me. This was

the collection of Rhoda (Wilson) McAninch (1849-1930), wife of Daniel A. McAninch (1850-1930),

and included portraits, snapshots, school photographs, wedding pictures, and quite a few postcards

(postcards were  a very popular format in the early 20th Century, have your pictures taken at a

 photographer’s studio, could be mailed ‘back home’ with a 2-cent stamp, or just ‘hand delivered’).


Over 50 of these pictures and other items have now been scanned into computer image files, many of

the people have been identified, and the collection of ‘Rhoda’s Pictures’ is now available online --
