This will be my documenting of finding old Antique, Vintage photo albums and Photographs. Then trying to find out who these people are within the pages. This all started after I worked for a Film Archive documenting 16mm film, whenever I came across old Home Movies my eyes would be glued to seeing into someone else’s life and world, and wondering what happened to these people on the film, how did their film end up out in the world away from family?
The core of what I have done in the past or my own site http://www.savethetoys.com ultimately requires Research, Studying, Picking up clues and fine details, and spending hours scouring the internet linking one piece of info to put a name or a place to something. I get a total thrill out of doing it. My mother is a family history researcher whose passion is uncovering the past, so she is often my assistant behind the scenes also finding info for me. I didnt get into Old Photo Albums until the end of 2010. I was in the Phoenix, Az area at an antique store and there I found my FIRST photo album and what started my new hobby.
