I finally got my tree up on My six month free subscription will expire this month, but I'm going to go ahead and pay to renew it. Real life has required my attention lately and I'm just now getting it up.

I did find that privatized some names that shouldn't have been privatized and vice versa, but most went up correctly.  I've been busy making corrections and adding pictures and documentation. 

You can find my tree here.  I named it Who's Who In My Past.

I love the old photographs.  Sadly, I'm afraid these are becoming a thing of the past.  I always think it's sad to see piles of old photos in flea markets and antique places.  Why didn't someone in the family want them?  I guess in the future instead of piles of photos we'll see piles of CD's or whatever the latest thing for photo storage exists then.

This is my husband in his toy fire engine.  The year was 1948.
 This is me on my new bike sometime in the early 1950's.
This is my mom as a young child sometime in the 1920's.
And this is one of my favorite pictures of my Dad with his brother and friend.  Obviously a staged photo.  My Dad was an avid Chicago White Sox fan and loved baseball.  I guess this was taken sometime in the early 1930's.


  1. Awe Betty this photographs are all so sweet - you had these right? Love that you have your sweet hubbies photo there. Sandie

  2. The picture of you on the bike looks like it could be me! I have a picture just like that. We're just two years apart, so I can relate to the look and feel of your childhood pictures.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting Betty. I see your son had cancer, but is now cancer free. That must have been a terribly stressful time for you and your family. Thank goodness that's all behind you now.

    Blessings to you, and please stop by again if the spirit moves you. I love making new blog friends!
