Since last week’s photo came from holdings at the National Archives at Chicago, we thought, what could be more appropriate than getting one of our Windy City colleagues to be our guest judge? Regional Office Management Assistant Mary Ann Zulevic stepped in for the duty and, after much deliberation, debating, and pondering, picked this genealogical joke for the win.

The original caption for the photo is: “On Demonstration Trail, ‘Trees for Tomorrow’ Conservation Workshop, at Eagle River. Walt Nicewander shows 2 teachers a knotty, low-grade bd. Produced by limby trees such as white pine to the left. Vilas Co. Wis. 07/1960″ (Records of the Forest Service, RG 95; ARC 2131639).
I don’t know if the men in this week’s photo for caption are from the same family tree, but they sure seem close. Put your best captions in the comments section below! We’ll reconvene again next week to pick a winner—same time, same place.
