My grandparents on my father's side had 11 children. My grandfather, who was a very organized man put together 24 photo albums with family photos going back as far as the late 1800s.
I am now in the long and endless process of scanning and/or re-photographing these precious photos of our family history to try and preserve them. Everytime I pick one of these wonderful photos up I am so amazed at how time passes and how we change. It's such a strange and wonderful feeling to be looking at one of my ancestors in those wonderful dresses. Sometimes it's possible to see some feature or glimpse of my living relatives in them.
