Notes from the past…

A few loose ends

1 Comment

I have been working this morning on editing the several digital photos of Dr. N. B. Kennedy’s obit into a glued-together single image, 2 actually. The image from the Hillsboro Mirror that was microfilmed wasn’t of really great quality (only 111 years old!), blurry and dark in some views, so I took several photos. Then I merged them all into 2 columns, like they were in the newspaper originally. Finally got that done, then I updated his obit in his footnote.com story page. And I’m really hoping beyond hope that one of the unidentified photos that my cousin Susan sent to me is the camera-shy Dr. Kennedy! One in particular looks very promising, as the photo is from Hillsboro and looks to be about the right time period. What do you think?

One thought on “A few loose ends

  1. I think it would be great if that was the doctor himself! I wonder if he would have applied for a US passport (sometimes they have photos attached thugh not the earlier ones) – they are at Ancestry as you probably know. I found some photos of realtives whom I had never seen before, which was really nice.
