Today would have been Mum’s 63rd birthday. So in honour of her I have done a layout. There are quite a few photos of Mum as a little girl. She even had a scrapbook with photos – but not much information about them.
I don’t know how old Mum was in the photo, where it was taken or by whom. It is a shame not to know but anyone who may have been able to tell us is no longer around.
If you are doing layouts or other forms of recording your memories it is always a great idea to include the date the photo was done and even the location. Try to work in the names of the people into your journaling or on a little tag in some way.
That way future generations will know. And not have to wonder?
If you have older photos like this and relatives still around who might know the information – track them down and ask. You never know when it might be too late.
