Wordless Wednesday is a daily prompt at Geneabloggers that asks family historians to create a post in which the main focus is a photograph or image.
Several times I have written about my inability to learn more about my Irish aunties in New York. In particular there are numerous photos of a woman with a poodle. She is probably one of the sisters of my great grandmother Mary Theresa Sheehan Killeen Walsh, but which one is the question. This is the oldest photo of them, dated 1915.
What does the back say? Is her name Salma Moss? Or is this a place, Salma, Massachusetts? Is it supposed to be Salem, not Salma?
