2nd Anniversary of the Old Family Photographs Website

It is hard to believe it has been two years since the Old Family Photographs website was launched! The website was established to preserve and share the large collections old family photographs that are in my care. Many of the photographs belonged to my great grandmothers.

Over the last two years the site has grown to house over 500 old family photographs and family documents. The documents include post cards, hand written notes, letters and newspaper clippings. The content is housed in twelve different collections.

The collections currently available include:

Many of the photographs featured belonged to my great grandmothers Helen Bukowski and Frances Philomena Selker. Over the last two years other family members have been very generous and have donated additional photographs to be shared with the collections.

A special thank you to all of the family members have also contributed to labeling and identifying the old photographs. It has truly taken a village! As a result of our combined efforts many photographs that were unknowns are now labeled and identified.

The old family photographs website has been refreshed to be house under the MB Boutiques Brand. The site still contains all of the old photographs. To navigate to the old family photo collections select Photo Collections from the top navigation bar.

We are very fortunate to have a large collection of old family photographs. There are still many more old photographs to be shared. My goal will be to continue to add new content to the site on a regular basis. New content will be shared using this platform. Updates will also be provided via the Facebook page - Our Ancestors - The Murosky & McDonald Ancestral Lines if you wish to follow along that way.

To learn more about the work to setup the website and prepare the photographs for sharing please visit the Portraits of a Life section. Portraits of a Life is a project to digitize, archive, restore and share the large collection family photographs that are in my care.
