Who Wasn’t Speaking?

Years ago, when I asked my great-aunt to identify some pictures for me, she indicated that she was surprised that two of the siblings were in the same picture with each other–let alone sitting next to each other.

Documenting those things is a good idea. Even if you do not know the reason, the fact that there was a falling out between two individuals may be helpful to someone later. And if you are needing a reason to go through your old photographs, looking for pictures to see “who is in a picture together when I’m surprised they were in the same room” might get your genealogy gears turning.
