Last time I went home, My dad gave me an old suitcase. It is filled with old, old family photos. He started to write who everyone was and I need to get him to finish. There is a ton of old negatives that need to be developed. Lucky we have all the stuff to do that. If we can get some of our adult children to move out we could set up our darkroom again.
Good luck with all the memories. It's fun to read about our relatives.

Yes but just think of all the things you've inherited to SCRAP!! A lifetime of scrapping are in those love letters! <img border='0' src='/images/icons/smile.gif'>
Wow! What a treasure trove! That photo does my heart good. I could show you something similar - but I have no-one else to blame! I guess the hardest part will be knowing where to start! I say go have a cup of coffee with friends instead <img border='0' src='/images/icons/grin.gif'>
Oh boy, that doesn't look like fun. Just take it one day at a time!!
Good luck! <img border='0' src='/images/icons/shocked.gif'>
Project - There's a scrap room under there somewhere!

My dad sold his house and took off in an Airstream, and I inherited a lot of old family stuff (like boxes of love letters between by grandparents from the 1920's, and 10,000 slides). Then my mom decided it was time to downsize from her 4000 sq ft house and offload her family treasures (including my other grandmothers' journals from her lifelong world travels) on me. Then, my kids keep growing and I put their outgrown stuff in “the pile” for a future garage sale. Will I ever see my scrapbook room again? Under there somewhere is a desk, literally buried in family history!
