A place to share the work I am doing on the Golden and Paloutzian family trees. The Golden family tree includes all the members of my mother's family, including the Steele, Levenberg, Davidson, Turra, Murphy and Moriarity families. The Paloutzian family tree includes all the members of my father's family including the Basmajian, Badigian, Keshishian, and Tatoian families.

Paloutzians and Torigians
I've been working on scrapbooking and identifying photos recently. This photo has writing on the back, in Armenian, and I requested a translation at ArmenianAncestry.com .
The only people I can identify for sure are Goohar Paloutzian (standing at the far left), and Tatevos Paloutzian (standing 3rd from the right), and their 5 sons at the front right: Ed, Frank, Ernie, Roy and Vern. Since the name Torigian was mentioned, I have compared this photo to another picture of the Torigian family (also from Parchanj), and I think the 2nd woman on the left is Tourvanda Torigian, and the man on the far right is her husband Markar Torigian. Can anyone identify anyone else?
The translation I received:
On the left side there is a name along the date:
Garabed Torigian - 1919 July ...
On the right side: On July 13 participated ... Garabed Torigian ... ( I think here it says birthday, but I am not sure)
This is Markar and Tourvanda Torigian and their sons Antranig (Trigger), Madiros (Martin) and Nish, taken about 1925.
