Z.T. Robinson 1938 Family Reunion in Chico TX
I have a couple of versions of this. One is hanging on my wall. One person tried to identify the people in the photo. He made a good list, but then finding the people in the photo is big job. My sister, myself, and other family members have added some to the identification. There are 156 people in the photo. These together with about 3,000 other photos are on the DVD which I provision to family.
I use this when I'm giving my talk on family reunions as an example of why it is important to identify the people within a few weeks of taking the photo.
