This video was shot from a projected 8mm fifteen-minute reel marked "Scenes from Home" and "Yosemite Mts." The actors I can identify are Leonard S. Smith and Lucy A. Smith and their daughter Helen B. Smith Posgate and (briefly) her husband, Robert N. Posgate, and their children Ruthy and Robin, who are visiting from Houston, Texas. "Aunt" Mary Ruth Smith and Lucy C. Smith (Ellerby), also daughters of Leonard and Lucy A. Smith, are present. The young blonde boy throwing the ball is likely Richard Ellerby, eldest son of young Lucy C. Smith Ellerby and A. Eric Ellerby. The others are, presumably, extended family and friends.
The churchgoing episodes may have been shot in the city of Los Angeles (?) and the last scene showing the ladies picnicking was possibly filmed in or near the San Bernadino Mountains.
Maxwell (son of Leonard S. and Lucy A. Smith) and his family are absent as far as I can discern.
