Re: Ezine cover challenge: Retouch this photo!

Thank you Cathy! I especially like the second one. Can you please forward a larger version?

snak, yes, when you go back to someone born in 1830, it's a bit tricky getting details... Actually, I've done quite well with this research, beginning over this past Christmas vacation and pulling most of it together in just two weeks using a free trial at Ancestry.com! Other details have come from older family members, which, if you have some, need to be interviewed ASAP!

It is sad, though, that over time, people forget who they are. It all depends on the records (or lack thereof) kept by the older generations. In my case, old census forms were quite helpful.

Re: Ezine cover challenge: Retouch this photo!

I'm new around here, but I like working with photos and saw the challenge, so I gave it a try. I went for the traditional matted portrait look.

Someone is going to have to teach me how to get larger pictures posted. I realize you can hardly see this thing.
