It's time for 106th edition of the Carnival of Genealogy, and the theme is the 4th annual Swimsuit Edition.
I participated in 2008 and 2009, but missed participating last year.
This year I'm sharing a photograph of my grandfather, Melvin Newmark, about to jump off a dock. The year is approximately 1930, and he's wearing a one-piece suit that was common for men in the era, but would be rare today. The photograph comes from my grandmother's scrapbook, so I assume she was the photographer, though the photograph pre-dates their 1936 marriage.
I don't know the other individuals in the photograph. The child in the background would be about the right age for my grandfather's younger brother, Mandell (born in 1923), though the kid in the picture appears to have slightly darker hair than other photos of Mandell I have at that age. Though it could be a matter of lighting.
