Connection to the Past - Repurpose the Present!
I was thrilled to be on The Change Zone
I talked about Possessions Papers and Photos
I believe our connections to the past should be saved with stories, family history and the photos! Not all photos are album worthy!
How to start: Organize old photos
Always start with your oldest photos first. See if you can identify the individuals in the photos. Dating the photos through knowledge of your genealogy, the age of the individuals, and the styles you see them wearing. Be sure to look for visual clues in the background of your photo. Printed Photo Organization includes culling, organizing, and adding descriptions.

Tip #3 for Creating a Photo Collection Legacy
We Love Photo Mysteries!
Do you have vintage photos that are a mystery to you?
Let us follow the clues in your multi-generational collection to help you bring your genealogy, stories,
and photos together as the ultimate family heirloom.
Every photo has a story just waiting to be told. You may be amazed at what you will discover.
The photo on the left is my grandmother, Hilda Elsie Bell, (nee Hanson) proudly displaying blooms from her garden. From the background we were able to figure out it was from the time she lived on Dodds Road in Headingley, MB. Now, thanks to this photo I have a photo to accompany that chapter of her story. The house dress she is wearing is very typical of a 1940s dress worn on Sundays. Long sleeves, pockets, belted and hangs to just pass her knees.
Born in Oslo, Norway on June 10, 1900 she came as a child to Canada and passed away December 30, 1987. Thanks to research, I was able to find the apartment where her family lived
when she was born. I also have her government approved paper showing she had her vaccines as a baby along with other documents, acquired through censuses and vital statistics her story is slowly coming together. I heard she was once a flapper!
Even the scandalous information that she was pregnant with my Uncle Jack when she got married. Something my mother didn't even know until after my Grandma Bell's death. Something that by today's standard is very normal at that time would have been scandalous!
I was blessed to have her in my life and she was truly the matriarch or our family. I loved to visit her with my mom on Sundays and I remember her living room library that extended across one wall and was mostly full of Harlequin Romances.

Do you believe, as I do, in the power of photos?
Growing up I knew my "Uncle Jimmy's story", as did all my cousins. Uncle Jimmy became a prisoner of war captured on D-Day, he was executed two days later on June 8, 1944. My dad's 18th birthday. But, his mother, my grandmother, along with his four brothers (including my dad) and five sisters kept his story alive for us by sharing his story and displaying and sharing his photos.
Every family members home proudly displayed a photo of Uncle Jimmy on the living room wall. Only 20 years old at the time of his death he has lived on in our hearts because of the power of stories, genealogy, and photos. That was the beginning of my passion for helping everyone organize and manage their photos.
Remember someday your photos will be
someone's heritage photos.
