UNNAMED PICTURE IDEA
We all have a lot of unnamed pictures of our ancestors and no one seems to know who they are. There are also pictures of people in my deceased grandfathers collection, that faces seem familiar to me, but I don't have a clue. I found that a reunion booklet of pictures will be looked at and the rest will be ignored. Folks will ask you questions about a picture, rather than read the explanation under these pictures. They just will not read anything unless a picture accompanies it. SOOOOOOOOO since the ancestors keep whispering this in my year..I will share it with you. I have sent all of my 'key cheerleaders to family discoveries', in my paternal and maternal sides a reguest to..scan and email me all of the deceased unnamed pictures they can get their hands on...I explained my plan and have told them I will put each group of pictures in a booklet or pdf form so they can include or seperately sell as a fund raiser for their reunions. This will be 1 booklet from each member group for any and all unnamed pictures. It can also be used as a NAME THAT PICTURE GAME. Someone attending or someone sitting at home may thumb through it recognize a face..and a ancestor is named. No one wants to be forgotten and this is the only way I can figure out getting copies of images and start up conversation. I have folks in my family that will say..well dont you know that's so and so..I thought you knew that. Everybody does.Everybody except everyone in the family. We were all too young or weren't born when these people lived.
