Time it was, and what a time it was, it was
A time of innocence, a time of confidences
Long ago, it must be, I have a photograph
Preserve your memories, they're all that's left you
Paul Simon

A to Z Theme Reveal is today

This is easy. The Ancestor Photo Box is pictures of ancestors. They are not necessarily my ancestors but those of family friends and coworkers of my parents and other family members. Some don't have names, some do. Some I can identify by the location only.

I am a family historian with tons of pictures that still have not been scanned or identified. These people had family who loved them and would be delighted to find them. This is the only way I have of making them available to people who are actively searching for family.

Mrs. Drake, Mrs. Crane, Reverend Rich, Reverend Breland, Pastor, 1958. In West Covina where Rev Drake's house used to sit when Immanuel Baptist Church was organized.
This is just one of many. I was a little girl when this was taken. I remember the names but not the people.

I was recently overwhelmed when I joined a Facebook group for the area where I grew up and someone (out of the blue) posted my 2nd grade picture. I had pictures of another member's sister. We spent weeks sharing what we had. What a blessing it was to provide pictures they didn't know existed. We had so much fun!
