Week #1: Upload your favorite picture and talk about it on your blog. Answer the who/what/when/where/why of the subject matter and explain why it is your favorite.From "Jump Start Your Genealogy Blog. 52 ideas. 52 weeks" by Amy Coffin at We Tree (http://wetree.blogspot.com)
Some of you may have seen this picture before. It was posted on Dear Myrtle's blog back in July of 2007 here! When I look at this picture I will always think of my "Nana" in her apron and relate that to raspberry jam! If you read the article you will understand why!
This is a picture of myself as a baby and my great grandmother by marriage, Augusta Pauline Ochs. She was born in Pennsylvannia August 17, 1888. The picture was taken at my grandparents home which at the time was in San Leandro, Ca. in 1956. This is the only photo I have in my possession of my Nana so it is very special to me. This has also become a favorite photo of mine simply because I responded to a post by Dear Myrtle, to her personally, and she chose to post this picture and my email to her. I never in a million years expected that to come out of a response to one of her blog posts! I felt very honored indeed!
Thanks for stopping by!
May you find success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
