Henry’s Baby Photos

Little Henry was born at home in San Francisco in 1918 and his parents documented his life in photos. There were many photographs of Henry as a small child, far more than those shown below, plus a photo of Henry as a young teen then later in the military.  Between his time in the military and the early 2000s, the photos were lost and eventually found their way onto eBay.

2011 was the year I first joined Ancestry.com with a paid subscription and these photos were one of the first identified items I looked up.  It didn’t take me very long to find his grown son, William, living in Virginia.

These photographs were returned to William on 16 January 2011.
