|Gloria & Alice|
Who are these two adorable little girls? The one on the left is my mom Gloria and on the right her sister Alice. My guess is that mom is around four and Alice about two years of age. I have always adored this photo and it has really got me to thinking about all the family stories I have heard over the years. Stories that will be certainly lost if someone doesn't write them down!
Our family can not trace back to the Mayflower as I am only third generation here but their story is my legacy and that of my children, siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles and anyone who knew them. One of courage, love, sadness and triumph. Stories and photographs I wish to tell and share with the help of any relative or family friend who would be willing to record them and get involved. Do you feel another book coming???
Since I cherish these stories and old photos what better place to start than with my mom's side of the family. Why that side first you ask? Well I have the most available information and my mom is still alive at the age of 88 as well as her three sisters to help me along. Women in the family always seem to recall the almost forgotten details far better than their male counterparts.
I will create another BLOG for the family journey but will share it with all of you from time to time here on this site. A link will be created from this BLOG so that if you wish to click on over to visit the family site you may do so. I will continue to write and share general information, inspiration and photographs on this blog. I am very excited about this journey and hope my family is also and somehow I just know they are!!! Restoring old photos has become a new hobby. Just love it!!!
