Crestleaf.com’s 12 Months of Fascinating Family Finds: July – Pictures!

For a number of reasons  I haven’t really done as much with my family history/genealogy as I would have liked this month. But I do have an for this month’s entry into the Crestleaf.com Fantastic Family Find challenge

This month’s Fantastic Family Find is due to my parents’ current downsizing and impending move. One day last week I received a letter from my father containing an envelope addressed to his father  postmarked "August [?] 1957" from his from his sister, Irma Henn Sutton, in California, and it was chock full of old family photographs! I thought I would share a few for this entry, and so scanned them with my new portable scanner (FlipPal).
