Here is a picture of 3 friends of my mom, Ann Skrobul, having fun at the beach. The person on the right appears to be mom's friend Stella Gordon. I don't know the names of the other 2. I believe this photo was taken in Chicago in the 1940s. So, that water they are standing in is probably pretty cold. Lake Michigan just doesn't get that warm!
I am a genealogist with over 30 years experience. I have been researching my own family history since 1974, and I did client research for several years. I hope to have more time for research and blogging in 2012 than I have had in the last two years.
