Family History

Aren't those just SO great?!?! Mum sent me a huge amount of old family pictures, and I've just now started scanning them in. Isn't it just so neat to look at photos of relatives and seeing "oh, mum looks just like her!", or "wow, M has her smile, doesn't she?" or "P has papa's cheeks!" I'm finally appreciating that we have these pictures, it's such a real way of seeing your family history. I'm excited for M, P and J to be able to look on these and see people they never had the chance to meet on earth, and to hear the stories about them.

Thank you for posting those sweetie! It would have been Grandma Jo's 96th birthday next week and I know she'd have loved going through those photos with you and the babies. She loved little ones so much--and I know she would have adored you :)

These pictures are priceless! It's so neat to see family history, I guess that's why I love doing genealogy work! Thanks for sharing, and take care.

Wow, Laurie, those are so cool! We have very few old photos like that (and very few of my childhood, too!) which makes me so sad! I think that's why i'm an obsessive compulsive photographer now - I don't want my children to have any questions about their childhood, lol!
