Dad's family identified in picture

I posted my Dad's picture on Facebook yesterday (yesterday's blog also) and now I have names to everyone in the picture  -- Uncle Joseph Burkette, Great-grandmother Mary Button, Uncle Louis Burkette, Uncle Flipper Burkette, Aunt Christia Burkette "Aunt Peaches" and my Dad.

I also had very positive responses to my mother's class picture  --  one of the women in the picture, Julia Bush,  is a FB friend and she was so happy to share the picture with her family.

Yes, social media can be a wonderful thing!

On top of that, today my Mom gave me two suitcases of miscellaneous pictures to go through.  I'm going to have a scanning good time (in my James Brown "Gonna have a funky good time" voice)!

  1. Got to love the suitcases full of photographs even while worrying about the damage they may sustain jumbled up like that. I received my maternal grandparents photos in a little black suitcase.

    1. My Mom is so into my "discoveries" of census records & such that she made me a loan of the suitcases.
