Aloha,


The attached "1905 YMCA Convention" photo is part of my family photo collection. We did have family arrive on the Mayflower, and generations later my branch ended up in Nebraska and Iowa. Although the date and function was noted on the back, the location was not. Any assistance in identifying this would be greatly appreciated...it has been bothering me for years! I am not aware of any YMCA connection to our family either.

The 35th International Convention was in 1904.
The 36th International Convention was in 1907.

So we can presume it is not an international convention.

Perhaps this site can help.
