Here is a wonderful picture of my paternal grandmother’s (Mable Gerie Stafford’s) old school in Kentucky.
Fortunately, she wrote the following on the back of the photograph:
My old school—1st through 12th grade (no Kindergarten)
Yea Bobcats (basketball team)
Your dad was one.
One tip to remember as you document your family history: always scan or take a picture of the back of photographs. Family members often write important notes on the back, and these can easily be forgotten in the hustle and bustle of genealogy work.
