I like to think of family reunions as more than just an opportunity for us to eat and chat. Reunions should honor those who came before us and give us an opportunity to learn more of our family history.
Sadly, many are just not interested in those who came before us or just want to see the pictures. I love sharing the pictures, but what is a picture if you don't know anything about the person? Or the circumstances that caused the picture to be taken?
For example, what was going on in the picture below? Was this a family reunion? A church event? Or just Sunday dinner? Wish I knew!
|Ummm....this would be me.|
