Picture Perfect #15~ Douglas B. Hughes

I am currently working on my Family Genealogy Group page for Facebook. In doing so, I realized I have a tremendous amount of photos. I decided to feature one a week. No, not everyone is “perfect” however, they are to me!
Douglas Hughes is my Dad. He was born on August 18, 1915. I absolutely love this photo. Here he is 20 years old and this was taken at the Rubicon Civilian Conservation Corps camp in Lake Tahoe, California. He looks so happy sitting on that horse. He had been raised riding horses so he has a confident air about him.

I am a professional genealogist, writer, photographer, wife, mother, and grandma. I have two books available on Amazon.com: Your Family History: Doing It Right the First Time and Planning Your Genealogy Research Trip. You can also connect with me via Facebook or Twitter.
