Ain't the internet grand?
I was going to move on to another woman violinist this post, but fate has intervened in a most wonderful way. One thing I didn't mention in previous posts was my frustration with not ever being able to find a picture of Josephine Trott. All this research, and I hadn't been able to look her in the eye, so to speak. Enter the internet. Sandy Greene, who is married to one of Trott's great-nephews, came across my website in her genealogical searching and sent me a note. She offered to send pictures, and needless to say, I jumped at the chance. With her permission, they are posted below. Enjoy!

I know, this must have been a thrill. The search is never over.

This is phenomenal!! Thank you so much! Why don't we know more about her?
Thanks, Alexis! There's a full biography of Trott starting with the very first blog post of March, 2012 (click on the archived link at the right of the screen). Besides the classic "Melodious Double Stops" books, you can find two other etude books by Trott at sleepypuppypress.com. The etudes are all in duet format, cleverly disguised!
