My Grandfather, William T. Llewellyn, was the President of the S.L. Allen Co. in Philadelphia when I was a child. They were renowned as the manufacturer of Flexible Flyer sleds. We sure had some nice sledding back then! Good memories. He worked for the company for 52 years!!!

My mother's class ring was a treasure for two generations... her and me! I have photographed the ring and recorded the story. What treasure has affected your family for multiple generations? #familyhistory   #connectinggenerations   #heirlooms

Same place, different times. Take an old photo, recreate it at the same place. Frame together. Great idea for 50th anniversary - or the 10th!

About this community

This genealogy community is where we can share our ideas and discuss how to gather and preserve old family photos and heirlooms. We will also talk about writing our own memoirs and memories for our children and grandchildren. Professional genealogists and businesses should limit self-promotional materials.

My Grandfather William T. Llewellyn worked for the S.L. Allen Co. for 52 years, finally as President in the later part of their history in the 1950's and 1960's when I was a child. They are renowned as the manufacturer of Flexible Flyer sleds!!! We certainly had some good sledding! Good memories.

Making the switch from a compact camera to a dSLR has taught me many lessons. You don't have to use a professional grade camera to take great photos. However, if you're making the leap... let's learn together! #dSLRnewbie   #photography   #heirlooms  
The post Photo Friday: New Camera First Attempt shares how I began the switch to a more professional camera. For the first memorabilia photo session, I started with a pearl ring that I received after winning a local beauty pa...
