Sepia Saturday Week 14

Is it just me, or do other people agree that our Sepia Saturday posts are getting better and better? I find myself looking forward just as much to reading all the other contributions as I do to putting my own together. This is just as well as I will not be able to post myself this week - we will be out of the country until Sunday - but I will still be able to read all your contributions. Contributions like the one from first-time Sepia Saturday contributor, Vicki Lane, who told the story of her grandparents with two fine photographs and some very well chosen words. The ability to tell a life story with images and words seems to me to be what Sepia Saturday is all about. Week 14 of Sepia Saturday will be Saturday 6th March. Please sign up to the list so people can find your blog and your contribution.

Absolutely, Alan! We are getting better and better. I also think we're inspiring some people to start digging into their family histories for the first time. It's wonderful!

I too, look forward as much to the other posts as to doing my own. I think we're really on to something.

I have been following for some time. I am going to do one on this next Saturday. I love genealogy and have done hours and hours of getting mine together. Thanks for putting it together.

Thank you for the kind words, Alan! What a good idea you had with this blog! I'll be back.

This whole SS thing has been vastly entetaining for me as a reader. More importantly on the personal front, it's given me the kick in the butt needed to start writing down my own family's history... and considering what a procrastinator I am ordinarily, that's saying a lot. This week, I'll have the one photo I have of my mom's parents, as well as my mom's first known photo. And as for why I've entitled the post "Heroes and Villains" (with apologies to the Beach Boys), stay tuned, sports fans!

This has been an impetus to get my photos scanned and history written; much more yet to do and oh so many stories to tell. I love reading others' too...

You and Kat are going to force me to start writing this all down. I discovered a great grandfather picture I didn't know that I had. I will have to start to put it on paper as it is getting too complicated for me to even explain. It is fun though.

I wanted to post some Sepia photos of my hubby but he nixed that. I had to use my G-Grandfather instead.

I have to apologize in advance for not visiting you sooner. I have a 16 year old's birthday to plan.

You are right, these are getting better. I love this series. The demands of my job certainly slow me down some weeks, so my post for this week is about the serendipity of forgotten photos I find while looking for a sepia worthy pose. My plan today is to grade a set of papers and visit two Saturday Sepias....grade another set...visit two more and so on...! Ahh...I see a blessed retirement on the horizon with no papers to grade!

Hi. My friend Barbara Finwall encouraged me to look at your site and read the interesting posts. They are fascinating and dredge up so many memories. What fun.
