The Kerrville Genealogical Society is currently without a home, having parted ways with the Butt-Holdsworth Memorial Library.  We will use this blog to continue to provide items of historical interest to the community.  Our first on-line project is to share a set of old photos we recently acquired and seek help in identifying the people and places in them. These were developed from a set of glass plate negatives. Most were taken in a studio.  We believe they are all Kerr County residents from the early 20th century.
Please help spread the word!

If you can identify this man, reply in the comments box below. (The numbering was assigned by the computer when these were scanned it. Please don't be confused by it.)
