The other day I posted a series of clues about the following Scout photo:
From the original post we are dealing with a photo from the BSA site that is listed as being from the 1910s with a title of Defending Liberty.
Clue #1 – For Defense
John J. Tierney did some investigating and he thinks that the Minuteman image is from the WWII bonds and not WWI:
Yesterday I posted a photo containing Boy Scouts with a challenge to learn as much about the photo as possible:

I am a big fan of Maureen Taylor (aka Photo Detective) and her blog. I came across a photo the other day that I thought would be perfect for those interested in a little photo detective challenge. It has to deal with the Boy Scouts of America that are celebrating 100 years this year.
The photo is from the BSA site, is titled Defending Liberty, and is categorized as being taken in the 1910s. Here is a link to the photo.
There are plenty of clues in the photo that hopefully we can figure out where this photo was taken and a narrower time of when it was taken.
Please comment on this blog (or on your own) with what you find.
Back in January 2010, I attended the Arizona Family History Expo as an attendee and presenter. I also had the opportunity to have a Scouting Heritage booth.
While I was there, I was interviewed by my good genealogy friend, Lisa Louise Cooke of Genealogy Gems. I have been interviewed by her on a previous occasion and it was a great experience. This time we spent a few minutes talking about the 100 years celebration of the Boy Scouts of America, what records might exist to research your Scouting ancestors, and about preservation and access of Scouting records.
The interview is included in Episode 87 of the Genealogy Gems podcast.

In part 1 of this series, we looked at the membership card and got a general feel for the information it contained. In this part, we will look at the 1930 census to see what information we can find.
I have two options easily available to me to look for the 1930 Census for Texas: FamilySearch.org and Footnote. I could also check Heritage Quest at the local library or access Ancestry.com at a Family History Center. Turns out that Record Search on FamilySearch does not contain the 1930 US Census for Texas, so let’s look at Footnote.
For those with a subscription to Footnote, you can find the image here.
