Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.

Does anyone have an idea when the dress dates from?ReplyDelete
No idea about the dress. And what about that veil-crown? It's wonderful. That looks like a family heirloom sort of thing.ReplyDelete
What's the heritage of this couple? For some reason, my brain is saying "Greek" but I bet that's wrong.
The crown is beautiful. Maybe that dates to a specific period as well? As far as I know, the couple is Jewish.ReplyDelete
Jewish, yes - but what nationality?Delete
I suspect this couple was married in the U.S., so probably American.ReplyDelete
The head piece looks a lot like the one my mother wore for her wedding in 1941. Unfortunately the only photo I have is very bad so I can't see any details, but it is about the same size and shape.ReplyDelete
That fits with my admittedly broad dating of the dress, which I thought kind of looked like 1940's, but I don't know that era very well (my knowledge mostly drops off after the 1920's).Delete
