Bones Are Forever Genealogy

A family history of the ancestors of William Donald Vest III and Samantha Isabel (Rivera) Vest


We all love pictures! I don't believe I've ever met anyone who didn't like them. They connect us to the past as a visual documentation of events, people and / or places. Some can be pleasant or laughable. Others can be difficult and painful. Those, we tuck away, as painful as they are, sometimes we just aren't ready to face them yet.

Personally, I absolutely love pictures. And yes, I've had to tuck away a few over the years. My mom left us boxes of pictures she had collected over the years. Some she took, some she got from family, some she inherited from her mom, Zadie, when she passed. Mom loved to take pictures and we used to kid her about always breaking out the camera at the drop of a hat. Any event or occasion and you can be sure, if mom was there, she was documenting it with a camera.

No one's kidding her now!

It's because of mom that we have so much as we do and I have been trying to scan them all in. Admittedly, my diligence has tapered off significantly and I'm behind (that means I got lazy). I scan each one in at a high resolution. Usually much higher than what is recommended. If there's any writing on the back, that is scanned the same way and the file names have the addendum of "Front" and "Back" (pretty clever, hunh?).
