- Jul 1, 2000I have a photo situation similar to Sandra's. I have a photo of my great
uncle Edward Anderson of Glasgow, Scotland. It is apparently a marriage
photo of him and his "second wife". On the back is the notation "Edward
Anderson and his second wife". Well, that told me he married twice, but what
were his wives' names? When was the picture taken? (I know it was taken in
Glasgow because the portrait studio's address is stamped on the border.) I
found Edward and one of the wives in the 1881 UK census, so I know the name
of one of them, but which one? (When I get a look at some earlier census
data, I may find some answers.)
