digging up some roots

It all began here.
I went in search for old photos of family members. My mom gave me an entire bag and the treasure hunt began. Look at the treasures I found!

My Maternal great granparents. My grandma is the little one on the right.

This quickly became a "preserve my past project". I began scanning every pre-digital picture I could find! It is addicting! I am still not done and may never be, but what fun it has been to feel that these images and documents (yes, I found birth-death-and military docs) are here to stay! I uploaded them all to an external server so they can be saved in case of fire.

Wow! I just checked out the weblink and found my grandfather listed. I have to get some first names but I am going to try and check out the rest of my family as well. Love the hat on your great-grandmother in the top photo!
