Friday Photo: At Home

On the first two Fridays of each month, I showcase a family photo and answer the “who, what, when, where and why” of that picture. The first week’s Friday photo is taken from my side of the family and the second week’s Friday photo is chosen from my husband’s side of the family. (I got the idea for this column from Amy Coffin’s ebook The Big Genealogy Blog Book advertised on her The We Tree Genealogy Blog.)

Michael Demoskoff and his sister Margaret
Michael and Margaret Demoskoff, 1956

Michael and Margaret Demoskoff.

My husband Michael and his baby sister Margaret pose for a photo on their parents’ bed.

Around December 1956, because Margaret looks like she’s about 8 months old.

At their parents’ home near Pelly, Saskatchewan.

If it was December, Michael’s father might have taken this photo (there are two or three in this set) at Christmas time.

Michael loves this photo, because he remembers the family’s farmhouse and his parents’ bedroom. He told me how he and Maggie, when a bit older, used to get into trouble for jumping and bouncing on the bed. He also remembers how his father had a fold-out bellows Kodak camera and 120 film and thinks he used it to take this picture.
