Mystery Woman

In September I attended the Family History conference at the St. Helens, Oregon public library. So many wonderful people. I even taught a class. There was one woman who spoke to me twice telling me she had to leave early to go to a baby shower. She looked so familiar, but I still can't think of her name. Please note that my brain processing is not so good when I am focused on other things. If this was you or you know who she is please let me know.

Sharing Family Pictures

This past weekend members of our family met for dinner at my sister's house. Three siblings came and one brother did not. In preparation for this get together I completed a project I started over a year ago. At that time when we met I shared my mother's picture albums with them and they all tagged the pictures that they wanted with their individual colored stick on tags. Later one of my nieces also tagged the pictures that she wanted copies digitized. Each of their pictures was filed in their scan files. When I was finished there were over 200 pictures. I decided to give them their own pictures and all the other picture files on a flash drive. Now those files will be saved on four different computers besides my own and our back up hard drive. I still want to scan the pages of most of the albums. It is a challenge to share and then preserve the memories of our families. This is a great project for Family History Month in preparation for Thanksgiving when we may be together with our families. Just do it and you will be so glad that you did.
