When my husband came back from his grandmother’s funeral a few weeks ago, he brought with him treasures. A bag full of old photos of his ancestors from Austria and Germany. Black and white snippets in time of weddings, parties, family gatherings, and childhood moments. Memories captured on film left for the generations to come. I knew I needed to do something with these pictures instead of filing them away in my tubs full of photos-yet-to-be-scrapped.
Since I don’t know many of the stories behind these pictures, I have enlisted the help of my mother-in-law Charlotte. With her help, every Monday I will post one of these vintage photos with a little story behind it. My hope is that these stories will eventually get compiled into a book to be passed along to future generations.
