Another blast from the past!
In regard to Snapshot Saturday posts, this might be the mother load.
At the family reunion, my father’s cousin, Jim Keogh, brought this photo up. It was incredible. It has Harmers and Keoghs in the image. He was gracious enough to send me a scan of it.
This is awesome. And as I work toward a photo album of family images, this will be one of my favorites.
It was taken in the spring of 1941.
Front row: Joe Harmer, Adeline Keogh (holding James Keogh 3rd, keeper of this wonderful image), Philip Keogh, James Keogh Sr., Frank Harmer (my dad, seated in middle), Catherine Keogh, Frances Harmer (my grandmother) holding Phil Harmer, Grace Keogh holding Kathleen Keogh and Catherine Harmer.
Back row: Jimmy Harmer, James Keogh Jr., Elizabeth Keogh (Sister Catherine Frances), John Harmer Sr (my grandfather) and John Harmer Jr.
My Aunt Mary and my father’s cousins Louise, Phil and Bob Keogh weren’t yet born, which is even cooler with this photo. Way too wild to see things like this.
I have received a lot of family images for this photo book I am putting together. If any members of my family — from my mother’s side of my father’s side — has more, please contact me. I’ll gladly pay for shipping costs to and from to get the images and scan them, or scanned images can be e-mailed to me. They don’t have to all be older photos. Newer photos are accepted as well. Please, however, identify everyone in the photo so I can do so in the photo book.
I’d like to finish this photo book by the end of the year or early next year. I am thinking the book will be somewhere in the range of 200-300 pages. Depending on the size I go with the book, will likely fall anywhere in the price range of $75-$150. I realize this isn’t chump change, so I’m letting everyone ow in case they want to eventually purchase one. It basically comes down to the way I handle the photos (one per page, several per page etc.)
But first things first, please contact me if you have photos you want to send. If e-mailed, I need scans to be large so I can work with them for the book.
Enjoy and I look forward to hearing from all of you!
