To view the photographs in this directory, place the insertion point (click once) after the last character in the address box of your browser, delete everything back to (but don't delete) the last slash, then hit Enter. This will produce a server-generated index of all the files in the directory. Click once on a filename to display the photo.

The images are numbered according to their appearance in the photo album created by my father, William James Bly Jr (herein WJBlyJr, 1912-91), the order being roughly chronological by family, starting with my mother's (Jane Rex Bly, 1914-92) maternal grandmother Jane Campbell McNary (1860-1940), and proceeding through her paternal grandfather David C Rex (1851-1946), my father's maternal grandparents Stewart William Hamilton (1870-1949) and Catherine Gray Hamilton (1872-1969), and his paternal grandfather, James R Bly (1849-1920).

There follow personal galleries of my mother's parents, Florence McNary Rex (1885-1960), and Frank Clyde Rex (1882-1967), and my father's parents, Madeline Hamilton Bly (1895-1951) and William James Bly Sr (Pop Bly, herein WJBly, 1887-1946).

The last section of the album comprises extended galleries of my father and my mother, from infancy through young adulthood — i.e., up to the time they got married.

Each photo or document was scanned at 150 dpi — i.e., roughly twice actual size — so that dim images and text will be easier to decipher. This means that the image will overflow even a large display, so some scrolling will be necessary in order to see everything. If time permits, a more elegant mode of presentation will be devised, but my aim in this first pass was to get as many done as possible.
