This interesting photo was emailed to me by Kathy Pole, a cousin on the Smolinski side of the family. Click here for the story behind the photo — and some speculation on my part. — JACK MAJOR.
A bunch of Majors gathered in Skaneateles Falls, NY, in 1930. For a larger version of this photo, plus another picture taken at that reunion, and the identities of these descendants of William Major, click here.
The year? Probably 1917. The location? A camp on Otisco Lake, NY. The man on the left? John W. Major. He's on vacation, and five of the children in this photo are his, but the others look like they showed up to audition for "The Sound of Music." They're probably relatives, maybe friends, but we need help in identifying them.
