July 5, 1933

            In my last post, I mentioned how my family is in the process of digitalizing old photographs. This is one that especially intrigues me, taken in 1933.


            From left to right: My great-uncle Roy, my great-grandfather, my grandmother (who was 3 and a half years old), my great-aunt Bee, my great-great-grandparents and then two mystery women who were probably neighbors.

            It makes me happy that photos like these have survived so many years. My mom’s side of the family has always been diligent about taking care of photographs and even dating them. I’d imagine this was taken in Vasser, MI – or in our family, simply “up north.”

            Some of our photos date back into the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. Do you have any photographs of your family from that era? I’d love to see them.

  1. This is so cool Becky! I have been wanting to dog out old pics for years but I have not had the time. I don't know if my parents have any that old, but I know my Grandma does.
