Picture Perfect Saturday #21 ~ Hazel Clara 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!

This week I am showcasing my Great Aunt Hazel Clara Hughes (1901-1953). Hazel is my Grandpa Hughes’ first child by his first wife, Clara Braden. Clara died in childbirth with their second child and my Grandma raised Hazel and her brother.

Hazel has a slight smile on her face like she knows a secret. This photo was taken in about 1916, and she is wearing a very stylish dress for those times. I love that this is not your typical posed picture and it was taken in Hughesville, Pettis County, Missouri.

I am a professional genealogist, writer, photographer, wife, mother, and grandma. I have two books available on 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.
