You always seem to do wonders with the oldies. Look forward to watching it here.
How's the family research coming along?

  I love the oldies, but then are I one (oldie).  :) 

Family research can be a mixture of wonderful and not so wonderful.  Right now I'm up to the early 1800's for my husbands side.  His father was Ponca/Otoe-Missouria.  His family ancestors were removed from their native area and forced to march to Indian Territory.

Though not kin, but of the same tribe, it was Standing Bear, a Ponca Native American chief, who successfully argued in U.S. District Court in 1879 in Omaha that Native Americans are "persons within the meaning of the law" and have the right of habeas corpus.

I agree, it is so interesting to read the history of native Americans.  I love the costume of the dancer in your photo, beautiful!

The dancer in the photo was my father-in-law.  He passed in 1994.  He was a traditional dancer, Hannie.

Candy, I read about about the Ponca tribes, how they fled from the Iroquois Wars and came to live in Oklahoma and Nebraska.  Your family must be so proud of your father-in-law and cherish this photo.
Sorry for hijacking your thread but I was wondering if you know if the Cherokee are related to the Ponca?

Not that I know of, Hannie.  However, I'm sure there are a great many mixed tribal families, just like the Poncas.  The Poncas and Otoe-Missouria's lived in the same area, so it was quite normal for marriage.  David's grandfather was Ponca and grandmother was Otoe-Missouria.  Still 100% Native American.
However, each tribe stands on their own when it comes to governance.

And now for an update on our young couple.  The second has a bit darker background.

Looking good. It was a tricky bkgd.

It really had no defined background so I lightened in one and the other I went 1/2 way.  It's the people that count.  Here's a bit of sepia added.

Thank you all and I loved  :loveit: sharing things about the family history... not necessarily the place, but fun non the less.

Miss Margie, our couple is coming home.

Looks great!  But, I'm a little confused as I've been working on this same image myself.  In fact I was just about to post an update on my progress.  Is there something that I did wrong?  I'm suspecting that I might not have gotten back to all fast enough.

Lumpy, maybe contact your distributor? They have plenty to keep track of and perhaps your image also got sent to Candice my mistake.  Whatever happened, thanks for sharing your work! Looks good.  :up:

Our distributors do a great job.  Sometimes things just happen.  The bottom line is that our families get back their loved ones.

No Lumpy, you did nothing wrong, my bad. Sorry I didn't catch this sooner, but the photo Candice posted was to be used as reference photo for the single photo of the woman that I downloaded to her. Sorry for the mix up as it would have been better to have waited for the reference photo to return and then I could have sent it to Candice later to help with her photo. Unfortunately the two single photos of the couples really will not find that reference photo that much help--maybe for the man.
