Family Historian

I'm becoming something of a family historian. My great grandfather (my father's mother's father) was an amatuer photographer and I have a lot of his photos (as well as other family portraits not taken by him) that I have been scanning in to incorporate into Aunt Grandma's book. (Aunt Grandma/Aunt Carrie was my father's mother's sister)

My grandma Janet as a little girl.

Grandma Janet as a young woman. I never knew Grandma Janet...she died when my Dad was 17. All I have are these pictures of her.

Great Grandma Ruth on Lake Ontario

Aunt Grandma/Carrie and Aunt Marion

These are only a few of the pictures I have. I have a lot more to scan in. Then even more work to implement them into Aunt Grandma's book.

These photos are beautiful, and I can't wait to see more. I've always kind of wanted to gather together some kind of family history through photographs, but my dad and I are pretty much estranged from his side of the family, so it wouldn't be easy.

Your Grandma Janet looks a little bit like my father's mother, from what few photos I've seen of both of them.
