So I?ve just learned they are apparently color slides and not photos.  Does that help narrow it down any?
We would need to view them to pinpoint the location where the photographs were taken from.

Being slides makes no difference, it is the visible content that is the important factor.

If they are 35mm color slides, you have to scan them in a device capable of doing transparencies. Most reputable computer and/or photo specialist businesses can do it if you, if do not possess the equipment. In some ways, color transparencies can have better resolution than prints that have been sitting around from that era.

Thanks Bruce.  ::fingers crossed::  I?m patiently (not so much, I?ve already called 3 times) waiting for my dad to send me a picture of them.  It?s crazy that she?s never mentioned it before but like I said, she tends to have random memories now.

Kendall,
On the off-chance your grandmother indeed took colored slides on the afternoon of Nov. 22, 1963 about the time of the assassination in Dealey Plaza, and they have never been seen by the public, they could be very valuable monetarily and intellectually. There are experts on this forum who can offer assistance in time and location of said slides. Good luck on your project, and keep this forum updated!

Kendall , if you would type in  --- Images of the Babushka Lady --  you will see about 10 pictures of the lady in question and there among those photos of this lady,  there are frontal pictures of her that are very clear but also a little smaller. Maybe these pictures can be enlarged .   Good Luck Kendall

Good move. If it amounts to anything then develop provenance, aka the chronology of the ownership, custody or location of the historic slide/s and your family's ownership. Probably, the percentage of people here are only interested in whether any photo shows anyone on the 6th floor of the School Depository bldg. or behind the stockade fence. If it does, BE CAREFUL! But, you can at least tell us if your grandmother was the "Babushka Lady." Still, a 55-year-old mystery. If your grandmother is still of sound mind, record from her what happened that day if she is able. Might make a good book in the future.  ;)
