Wordless Wednesday - 12 September 2012

It's me and my sister.  If you look carefully, you can see I'm hanging on to her arms for dear life probably trying to keep her from rolling off the prop.  My guess is if you want to know where my Mom was, follow her gaze.  I'm dutifully looking at the photographer trying not to mess up the shot.  :-)

I'm younger in this picture than my nephew is now.  Which of course doesn't make sense since I'm only 15 now.  :-D

My First Enumerator!

Imagine my delight as I'm transcribing data from the 1940 census and I see that the enumerator is one of my Domelle relatives!

She's not technically a blood relative, she's Mae BINGHAM DOMELE, the wife of my 2nd cousin twice removed, Tony DOMELE, son of John DOMELE.  This line uses only one "L" in spelling of the name.

Seems she is the enumerator for Lake Township, Newton County, Indiana.  Yay for Mae!

At the time she did this, she was 35 years old, with a 12 year old and 15 year old at home.
