Project 365/68 Getting there

Today's photo is of the project I have undertaken. Scanning my mother's family photos is becoming my favorite thing to do, I scan a batch in and then mom and I talk through the labeling process which sometimes tests her memory. She can tell me someones name 3 pictures later and that confuses the whole process and laugh about it. We set aside the ones that we think we know the individuals to see if they come up in a picture that has writing on it. The girls play and sleep while we toiled away the day. Today I scanned over 250 photos and only label about 1/3 to 1/2 of them before the kids were home from school and I had to get going. I wish with all my heart that I had wanted to know more about my relatives 13 years ago and I could have looked at these with my grandma and got all the information strait from the horses mouth so to speak. I've include 2 of my favorites so far.
