So, last week I launched a new page that I am calling by the simple name of History. What I hope the page conveys is my history, or more precisely, my families history but in graphics rather than words. This is a more literal history as it will contain only images arranged on a page. I started off simple with four rows of three images each. Each row has a theme; for example, the first row shows three buildings that have connections to individual ancestors. The second row shows land purchase records, the third row shows tombstones and four row shows group pictures. I will admit that the captions are short so the explanation for each image is not very detailed but these are snapshots in history so they are kept purposely vague. The nice thing about this arrangement, is that I can add additional rows at any time.
|The History Page contains a sampling of photographs,|
facsimiles of historical documents and other images;
meant to offer a family history "snapshot."
This blog has led to a number of discoveries and connected me to other family members that I did not know. In presenting this information, even though the amount of data that will get displayed will be minimal, I hope the History Page will help to showcase some of the items that I have accumulated and eventually lead to even more connections.
