Preserving Your Family History Thru Scrapbooking.

May 14, 2011 at 2:43 pm 1 comment

I would like to start by apologizing to everyone.  My speech was not all it should have been.  I started the day off wrong and left my notecards and half of my items I wanted to share with you at home.  That is no excuse so please forgive me.

I believe that we need to preserve our family pictures for our children and grandchildren and so on.  As I sit down and look thru the pictures that were my grandmothers I am sad because I don’t know half of the people who are there.  Are they my great grandparents? my great-aunt or uncle?  When we don’t have the ability to know who people are or what was going on during that time frame we start to lose part of our history and our family.  I know I was never able to meet my dads mom since she died when he was a teen giving birth to her 7th son, but I was able to when I was about 25, that’s when I was given a picture of her.  I had never even know what she looked like.  What color was her hair or her eyes.  I always wondered if maybe I looked like her.   Being able to connect with a picture and put and actual person with the name was my way of getting to know her.

I am so passionate about pictures and learning something about someone, I wanted to do all of you the justice of knowing more.  Thanks for being understanding.
