In honor of Armed Forces Day, this is a military honor roll for members of my family who have served the United States. My current count is 29 people from my family tree have made this list.
I got this idea from fellow genealogy blogger History Repeating. I thought it was a really interesting idea, and using the Statistics report in the Legacy software that I use to track my research, I pulled together my own infographic about my family tree. Here is the Reilly & Douglas Families by the Numbers:
I posted the below six pictures on Facebook, with this message to my family.
It’s time to play “Name that Ancestor”. I need your help – do you know who these people are? They were in with the photos I got from Pop. They may be siblings, cousins or close friends of Grandpa and Grandma Reilly (Lawrence Ambrose Reilly and Ethel Loretta Powers Reilly).
These were probably taken in the last 1910s or early 1920s. Potential surnames include: Reilly and Powers.
