Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m relieved that the mystery of the One Glove has been solved and a reunion is underway. I’m not going to include links here because instead of the usual one-column post, the glove tale stretched to four whole columns. Scroll down in the blog to read them all.

This week I’m asking for your help.

I’ve been hard at work tracking down all the little details about hair and why our ancestors chose to follow particular styles. It’s for an upcoming issue of Family Tree Magazine.

I don’t want to give too much away, but I’ll tell you right now…the story behind the puffs, ringlets and bangs on our ancestor’s heads is fascinating. I haven’t left out the men—facial hair of all sorts will be featured.

But here’s where I could use some help: Do you have a photograph of an ancestor with an interesting hairstyle, beard or mustache? E-mail it to me and you just might see it in the magazine or in this space.

Can’t wait to see what you’ve got!
