For over the past year I have been developing this book. It’s a culmination of my histories on my Mom’s side of the family.
Long before my grandmother died, she passed her negatives and prints to me to ensure their archiving. All her work and h…er family’s images were scanned and compiled with a story she wrote on her life. Growing up she always had a camera with her (i have since inherited those as well) and we have a plethora of images throughout the years. How fortunate!
This book spans from the mid 1850s to WWII. Volume two (in the works) will cover WWII to the 1970s. Volume II (in the works) will cover WWII to the 1970. As well, my mom has delved into our family history deeply rooted unbenknownst to us in Shawnee, Cherokee and French origins (dating back to 960 AD!)…that will be explored much more as well in the next volume.
Growing up, we were enthralled by my grandmother’s stories and pictures. What a great opportunity technology has allowed for us in the preservation of the “fade-able” objects we cherish.
