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, family stories, and photos together as the ultimate family heirloom.
Every photo has a story waiting to be told. Some of those stories are just waiting to be discovered and will amaze you.
The photo on the left is my grandmother, Hilda Elsie Bell, (nee Hanson) as a younger woman 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. 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. Thanks to this photo I have a photo to accompany that part of her story. The 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. 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 coming together. 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.
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.
We will bring it all together for you in a beautiful Family History Book or a Family Historical Website. Contact us today to start on your family's journey.
LEAVE A LEGACY not a mess
Certified Photo Manager
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. But, his mother, along with his four brothers and five sisters kept his story alive for us by sharing his story and displaying and sharing his photos. Every 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. Leave a legacy.
