Last week, Genealogy Insider blogger Diane Haddad, gave birth to a beautiful baby. In honor of this, I’m featuring your ancestral baby photos. Thank you for all the submissions.
Kim Dolce sent in this picture of her grandmother Estelle Miller Moore, who was born May 12, 1911, in Riverside, N.J. Estelle looks like she’s about to topple over.
Linday Bly Holub emailed me this charming picture of her grandfather Benjamin Bly (on the left), born November 1890, in Moberly, Mo., and his baby brother Adolph Bly, born January 1893, in the same town.
Carol Norwood submitted several photos of three generations of baby pictures. Here are two.
This is her maternal grandmother, Agnes Catherine Caroline Simon, born in 1896 in Erlangen, Germany. Don’t you love her bare feet!
This is Carol’s maternal grandfather, Helmuth Dromer, born in Potsdam, Germany in 1900. Small children of both sexes wore dresses. Carol actually owns pictures of his two older sisters, who as toddlers also posed in this dress sitting in this basket.
I’ve seen many different techniques and devices to photograph babies and small children, but one has to wonder about this basket. Cute, but if you look closely you’ll notice the basket is on a pedestal. One false move the this tot is on the floor.
