October is Family History Month

Here is a photo that is not new to our collection, but until now had been unidentified. Local historian and History Center patron Dale Jennings solved that mystery when visiting with Caddo Parish resident Dan Logan. The men in this photo were identified by Mr. Logan’s father Buddy Logan before his death. Buddy Logan’s father, Ed Logan, is in the photo. Get those mystery family photographs identified by older relatives before they pass on, or write identifications in soft pencil on the back of pictures for future generations.

A program for Family History Month will be held at the Benton Branch of the Bossier Parish Library: On Wed. October 19, Historical Center Director Ann Middleton will present “Do You Own a Radio Set? (What Census Takers Wanted to Know 1790-1930)" Benton Branch Library, 11:30 a.m. Bring your lunch, if you wish.
