Favorite Photo – Week 2


This is week #2 of Amy Johnson Crow’s “52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks” blog prompt series.

I may have used this photo in a blog post before, but I can’t help it.  As soon as I read this week’s prompt, this photo immediately popped into my head.  It is a photo of my paternal grandparents, Ed Lanctot and Maxine Slowey, when they were dancing at a picnic with some of Grampa’s friends from the service.  I just love how happy and  in love they look in this photo!

I think this photo was taken after they were married, and may have been when they passed through Yankton on their way to Ft. Snelling in Minnesota from Ft. Sill in Oklahoma around 1945.  Grampa was discharged from the service shortly after arriving at Ft. Snelling.  He served three years in the Southwest Pacific (northern Australia, New Guinea, and the Philippines).

I have been working on my genealogy in earnest (albeit in fits and starts) since around 1990. My approach to my research has evolved exponentially since those days (read: I actually appear to know what I'm doing now), and I am enrolled in ProGen 24 on my way toward certification. I am a Paralegal in a small law firm in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I am the Editor of Southern Roots & Shoots, the quarterly publication of the Chattanooga Delta Genealogy Society. Aside from work, blogging, and my genealogy research, in my spare time I like to ... wait ... I forgot, I don't have any spare time. If I had ANY spare time, I would travel (for research) and write (about my research).
