  1. Yes it does. I’m hoping my mum finds a few more photos tucked away somewhere. I still have plenty of the Big-T’s family, but it was nice posting them alternately. The families were quite similar and our mothers were both the second-youngest in families of mostly girls. T is the youngest of three with one sister and I’m the oldest of three with two younger brothers. 🙂

    • Hi Joanne. I feel like that when I see other bloggers’ photo collections too. I’m so grateful to my parents for letting me take custody of their family photos, and to the Big T’s aunt for a CD of collected shots from his extended family — that’s the really amazing one and I love looking at them. 🙂

      • The photos are the connective tissue to our past.
        I barely knew my grandparents .. and nothing beyond that.
        You have a very valuable treasure! How lucky for your family that someone like you is interested in pursuing the stories!

        • That is such a wonderful phrase “the connective tissue …”. You are right and I’m really glad to be part of it. I’m also loving that as I go along, I keep encountering distant relatives who are on their own journeys and we are able to share what we have learned. 🙂
