    I am so proud of my family, I want to share it with everyone. These are a few pictures that I Love going back to see. As I get older each year, the past years captured on film become more impartant to me than what is happening daily. This is really what you all hear refered to, as the GOOD OLD DAYS. You have to have lived them to be able to recall them. When you are as old as I am you will also know just what I am talking about. I am happy to travel back in time, to each moment in my life , that these pictures carry me to. These photos of my family were taken on an Easter Sunday before going to Mass. As always, Two of the boys were not around , when it was time to take the picture. AHHH well

    Beautiful family! I have a passion for old photos. We have a couple of portraits that hung in Grandma and Grandpa's house all our lives. We referred to them as Pinkney and Matilda thinking that they were grandpas parents. He never corrected us for some reason. Grandpa died in 75, grandma in 87. Somewhere around 2000 I decided to do some research on family history and found an old tin type of the woman in the picture. Sure enough it had great grandma's name on the back. The only problem was that the woman on the tin type was missing the lower part of one of her arms. It wasn't Matilda at all, it was a picture of her mother, Fanny.

    Beautiful family. Thanks for sharing.
    I know what you mean about the pictures. Now that my husband has retired he has transferred all the slides and pictures onto CD's and given a copy of all of our siblings and extended family to our children.
    For my 63rd birthday he put all of our family holidays, trips, birthday parties, etc. on a DVD with music so I can watch it on TV.
    I LOVE it.
