I love helping other people with their research at OHA, because sometimes I come across my own family, and I make a mental note to stay after work on a Sat or Sun to look through the information. This past week I was looking for something, and came across some nice photos of my great-great grandmother’s sister’s husband and child.
I love carte de visite and cabinet photographs. I have a large, unidentified daguerreotype that was handed down through my family to me. I thought perhaps it may be these two, and now I can do a side-by-side comparison and see if this may be possible.
Dr. James Oliver Longstreet is also the son of my Great-Grandmother’s aunt. The LONGSTREET surname is a famous one in Onondaga County, and someday (after hours) I’ll do the research into it (there are broken links when clicking on Longstreet due to Ancestry taking over Rootsweb). So much to do, so little time! Oh, and I have other stories to tell. It will take time to gather the info!
