WOW!!!! Tim & Georgia, what a lesson from the two of you. First, Tim posts a newspaper photo from the 1950's and one day later Georgia generates a "documented" genealogy narrative matching the persons in the photo to family dating back to births in the 1820's.
The power of AfriGeneas ..... and the researching skill set(talent) of it's Forum managers, readers and contributors are in full display in just these two postings.
Thanks to all involved.
There is a public tree on Ancestry.com put up by eb72740. The associated photo is that of a man who just might be the little boy in the newspaper photo, Ernest Burgess Beam. His username, eb72740, matches both his initials and his date of birth, according to public records on Ancestry.com, 7 Jul 1940.
