But I've gotten away from my point. Basically I've always been surrounded by pictures of the people I came from - on my dad's side at least. Cameras weren't as popular in the Bahamas, I guess, or they were too expensive. We don't have many pictures of my mom's side past her parents.
Since I don't have much news on the baby front except for the simple fact of NO BABY, here are some pictures of my ancestors as spotted on my Flickr photostream. I'll do my best to name each one:
We have a lot of pictures of Phylis - wasn't she gorgeous?
One of these dudes is Carl, too, but I'm not sure which.
And this, too, is Carl with my great Grandmother, his wife!
My great Grandma Louise at her wedding. Check out that veil!
And here she is as a kiddo. Folks say I look a lot like her.
My family keeps a lot of stuff, which is why I'm lucky enough to have held my great grandparent's marriage certifecate!
John Sweetser looking jaunty at his shop.
Look at that hair! And that kiddo on the bottom left is the same Carl that is also my great grandpa.
Carl in his band, somewhere in France during WW1.
My grandma and her mom. Two gorgeous ladies!
And one more of Carl to round things out.
And this isn't a family picture, but it was stuck in with them and I think it's awesome:
I need to scan all my family's photos at some point - if only because these things wont last forever and I'd be so sad if something fell apart before I could save it digitally!
So that's my family (well some of them). I'm thrilled that I'll be able to share them with the next generation.
