    I recently uploaded some older pictures of some of my family- I still have some that are pre- 1900 that I haven't yet scanned. Thought we could upload some our older pictures . I know there are a lot of people here that enjoy genealogy as well as chickens . I will start with a few. Have fun
    This one is my Mom and Dad in 1960 - I was born in 62

    Supposedly this picture was Thanksgiving, 1962. But thats not possible. The baby in the picture is my sister, who was born in 61. And there is no way she's 14 months old in this picture LOL. This is , from right to left, my grandfather, grandmother, uncle, aunt, my older sister and the doofy lookin guy is my dad.

    and my mom had the cat glasses in sun, and regular. UGH, she wore the regular ones long after they went out of style ( if they were ever actually in style)

    I loooovvvveee old pictures! I have old family pictures out the wazoo but I have none on my new computer (never transfered files). I have been working on my family tree for almost 5 yrs now and have accumalated bunches of pics! My favorite one is of my great great great grandparents in their older years. He was born in 1820 and grandmother was born around 1840 or so. The picture was taken in the late 1800's.
