If you have a recipe that is particularly important to you or your
family, photo copy it and put it in a different place than your
regular recipes.
I've lost the original of a bread recipe that is one of my signiture
bread recipes.
Thankfully I have a copy of the original. I'll make another copy to
store with my folder of special recipes.
Good Advice.

It's excellent advice. I have several recipe boxes that have
hand-written recipe cards (mine and my mother's) but I also have photo
copies of the ones that are important to me or recipes I typed in from
those cards and printed out over the years. :)

On a related note, it's good to photocopy old family photos. I've
slowly done bits of my grandparents photos over the years. One fire,
and all can be lost forever. A copy on a flash drive or CD can even be
stored in a safe deposit box.

Nice '56 Chevy. Not sure of the Corvette but with the headlights it is
at least a '58. Older 50s Caddy on the street the little bump up on the
taillights is the give away. I'd guess 53 or 54.

We also keep photocopies of Wills, driving licence, birth and
marriage certificates, passports, insurance covers stashed elsewhere for

I've always been keeping hard copies of all important documents...
anything important is never safe on the Web. I've always kept a hand
written phone/contact directory.
I will never trust computers.

I have grandma's first wedding ring. I say "first" because she was
given her birthstone (opal) when they got married. It was (is?)
tradition in the UK to give a birthstone. Diamonds are very much a USA
thing. After they emigrated to the US and became citizens Grandma
wanted a diamond ring. I much prefer the opal ring. :)

That is not a wedding ring.

Lovely. That's the kind of thing I would wear.
I love it! It's enamel on silver with hallmarks on the back. Grandma
was about 18 years old in that photo and they were all wearing their
Sunday best. The child in my great grandmother's lap was someone she
was babysitting. The disgruntled looking boy in the front row was my
great uncle Andrew. I met him when I was a child; he and his wife were
caretakers on the grounds of a cemetery in Pennsylvania.

Very interesting indeed! How cool that you still have her necklace.

Some folks think that the style of clothing in that day was drab, but I
disagree. A woman at the antique mall today, probably in her 50's, was
contemplating buying a 1920's era ladies hat. She really wanted it, but
told me that last time she owned one several years ago, her friends
teased her until she was shamed into throwing it out. I convinced her
to give it another shot when I showed her the flat cap that I wear to
work in this now chilly weather.

1920's ladies' clothing is anything but drab, often quite beautiful, and the styles are
fantastic...

The 20's were revolutionary in every way, our modern world began then. Much
of 20's dress is quite modern and contemporary, looks very well today... women
threw off the old tired Victorian ways of dress, skirts rose above the knee, all those
horrid constricting undergarments were discarded, long hair was chopped off... Coco
Chanel invented her famous "little black dress", a century later still a fashion staple:

Here is sexy 20's actress Louise Brooks c. 1926, posing with her new husband. She could
be of today, and he looks pretty swell, too. I go WOW! every time I see this pic:

Bah, the "handsomest" woman of the early Twentieth Century was Evelyn Nesbit.
She was hot when Dad was born. The next lady I ever noticed was Ingrid Bergman
in her younger years. Come to think of it, Alice Roosevelt wasn't bad
either, around Evelyn's time.
Then there were Marilyn and Kim in my youth. Apparently, I liked older
women. Am I a sexist?

in her younger years. Come to think of it, Alice Roosevelt wasn't bad
either, around Evelyn's time.
Then there were Marilyn and Kim in my youth. Apparently, I liked older
women. Am I a sexist?

He was pulling a Bruce. That was your cue to call him a Marxist.

You failed, Leo does a better "Bruce" than you.

On a related note, it's good to photocopy old family photos. I've
slowly done bits of my grandparents photos over the years. One fire,
and all can be lost forever. A copy on a flash drive or CD can even
be stored in a safe deposit box.
Like this?
https://i.postimg.cc/GhWFJrNj/grandma-sisters.jpg
The young woman in the back on the right is my maternal grandmother. The
woman seated at the front is my great grandmother, Liz. This pic was
taken around 1914 in Scotland. I have the necklace my grandmother was
wearing.
Jill
Very interesting indeed! How cool that you still have her necklace.
Some folks think that the style of clothing in that day was drab, but
I disagree. A woman at the antique mall today, probably in her 50's,
was contemplating buying a 1920's era ladies hat. She really wanted
it, but told me that last time she owned one several years ago, her
friends teased her until she was shamed into throwing it out. I
convinced her to give it another shot when I showed her the flat cap
that I wear to work in this now chilly weather.
Was the hat she bought a cloche?
Jill
No, not one of those. I suppose it was a more mid-century hat, after
looking at many online. I'm not up to snuff in women's clothing,
vintage or not.

It looked a lot like this:

"Fascinator" hat? Those are close, but it was less 'showy'.

I just call it a veiled hat. I think it dates later than you think. I
have one in my closet. I inherited a bunch of old hats from my mother. :)

My mother had one almost the same (minus the fabric flower). It may be
up in the attic, still. She would have worn it in the early 50s.

If you have a recipe that is particularly important to you or your
family, photo copy it and put it in a different place than your
regular recipes.
I've lost the original of a bread recipe that is one of my signiture
bread recipes.
Thankfully I have a copy of the original. I'll make another copy to
store with my folder of special recipes.
Good Advice.
Janet US
It's excellent advice. I have several recipe boxes that have
hand-written recipe cards (mine and my mother's) but I also have photo
copies of the ones that are important to me or recipes I typed in from
those cards and printed out over the years. :)

When my mother dies, I'll throw away all the old family photos along with
the rest of her stuff.
Cindy Hamilton
That seems sad, maybe a museum would like to go through them, you
never know what can be there. My father never talked about what he
did during the war and thankfully I had all his papers when an editor
called me and I started copying documents that meant little to me and
then learning what it was I was holding. Even the photos in some
cases had extraordinary prints of events, such as the deck covered
with children at Dunkirk - I now know he evacuated an orphanage and
they then were housed in Scotland.

My youngest aunt and I had waded through my maternal photos and feel
we did identify all correctly. After all that when pics were still on
paper, I always wrote on the back who the people were!

I was a little ticked off that my brother took it upon himself to sort
through my father's stuff and threw out a lot of stuff that I would have
liked. For example, there was a stack of sepia photos from the Boer
War. I didn't know that anyone in the family had been involved in that.
My wife's grandfather had been in the Boer War and she had kept some
of his photos and letters home to the family and sent them to the
national archives. Some years ago there was a documentary series about
that conflict on the History Channel and a lot of his letters were used for
that.

Thank goodness I snagged some of my father's war time albums. My son had
read somewhere that the Danish Resistance was well known for
photographing some of their exploits. Some of Dad's photos are proof of
that. There were pictures of him sightseeing in Copenhagen with members
of the Resistance in May 1943 when they were planning to get him across
to Sweden.

I wish someone had done that to some of our photos. I have some old
pictures of my brothers and I will cousins and some of them include
people who I do not know at all. I wish had had been more careful when
I wrote the names of my classmates on my old school photos. I just have
done them in the order of their position instead of just listing them.
Sixty plus years later I can only identify a few of them from memory and
some I cannot link the names to the faces.

There really isn't anything of historical interest in the family photos.
Cindy Hamilton
It's true, most family photos aren't things that wind up in museums or
are suddenly valuable on the Antiques Roadshow. ;) I've got a picture
of my grandfather wearing a wife-beater t-shirt digging a post hole.
It's interesting but not precious.

That seems sad, maybe a museum would like to go through them, you
never know what can be there.

Not true, old photos are very popular in second hand stores in museums.
Especially when there is a back drop that is known in your local area,
from local (likely long gone photographers), etc. The older, the
better. They aren't making any more 50-100+ year old photographs.

I know that you don't have any children to pass them down to, but I'd
bet that your mother would be heart broken to learn of your plan to toss
the old family photos after she passes away. This seems cold, even by
your standards.

To each their own, but I love looking through old family photographs,
and figuring out who was who. I can't fathom just not caring. Your
mother doesn't own *anything* that has sentimental value to you?

Cindy has stated that she is not a "sentimental" type, I totally get that... thus
her statements re: her mom's stuff... maybe she has few fond memories of the
"old family", or whatever...

Before my mom passed, I gave her my old "sentimental" pics and artifacts. I've no idea
nor do I care what happened to that stuff. Except for my parents' funerals, I've had no contact
with my siblings or other family members for 40 - 50+ years... nor do I care to... nothing
"bad" happened, just zero interest on both sides, we've nothing in common...

I have many photos over many years. A few have been thinned out but
there is probably some going back close to 100 years. My daughter likes
the old photos so she will become the caretaker and decide what to do
with them.

Many do have good memories for me so I do keep them at hand.

Very nice...

My parents' online obits each had many pics, etc. scanned in, so I have those. IIRC my sister
donated some stuff to our small local historical society, maybe my old report cards and
class photos are there, I don't know... I just purchased a lifetime membership to the
historical society, so maybe I should check, lol...

My family was "old", my grandparents born in the 1870's, some other relatives even earlier.
Both of my grandmothers passed in the 1940's, a decade before I was born, so I did not
know them. Same with my younger relatives, the older relatives are just "old pictures", etc.
My sister is the family genealogist, so I guess she keeps track of this stuff...

I do keep in touch with some old school classmates and teachers, we connected on Facebook.
Recently had a lovely dinner with my HS "Language Arts" teacher and her family. It had been 50
years since we'd seen each other, in 1971 she was fresh out of college, now happily retired. Her
son and his lovely family I found out live a few blocks from me I discovered, so that is very cool,
nice to see the son and family... he's an environmental engineer, so we've lots to gab about, his
office is just around the corner...

I'm also in touch with some nice old classmates, we exchange holiday cards and even small gifts...

My father does a lot of the genealogical stuff. I haven't delved into
it myself; maybe one day. He traced us back to Christopher Columbus...
pretty cool... at least my high-school history teacher though so, when I
told him my relation to the guy during a lesson (2nd cousin
I-can't-remember-how-many-times-removed or whatever).
Having my daughter at 19 years old, I was by-far the youngest to have a
child in recent family history, but my sister just had her first at 20.
On my mother's side, her grand parents (and even her parents) were
exceptionally older. I once posted a photo of those great-grandparents;
born in 1888 and 1900. That grandfather passed when mom was 2, same age
my last great grandparent passed. I'm glad that my daughter was able to
meet almost all of her great grandparents.
I'm related to Cindy Crawford. We have the same 32 times
great-grandfather.

That's a shame. My mother's father did not drink. I thought that was odd
because he had a really nice bar in his basement and it seemed to be
well stocked. It turned out the bottles were filled with coloured
water, not liquor. My father had two brothers and two sisters and they
always got along well.

My wife's father and his brothers were a little different. I don't know
much about them because my wife only met one of them once. There was one
story about them chopping fire wood. They argued about who got to use
the axe. One put his hand over the log to stop the brother from chopping
and the brother swung it anyway. There was considerable blood involved.

It happens all of the time. Of course, people typically aren't interest
in who's who in these old photos (unless they were famous locally), but
they are more interested in the homes, cars, style of clothing, etc.
Basically, they are interested in the historical value.

When I find old photos (typically from the 40's and back) laying around,
auction lots, etc -- I will put a dollar or two on each of them. Trust
me, they sell. Might not sound like much, but when you have several
dozen, it adds up. Some people go nuts over photos the age of the first
one you posted (19-teens) and back.

I'm not trying to put a price on something that you find sentimental,
but just for context, if I had a Victorian era necklace to sell, and I
had a photo of the owner wearing it from over 100 years ago, that would
easily triple the value of the necklace. Of course, I find things like
this interesting, but some people are quite odd in what they collect.

I'm not unaware of this. I've seen old photos for sale at flea markets
and antique shops and such. I know people buy old photos but I don't
understand why. I'm as big a fan of the old fashions as anyone, love
vintage clothing and own some lovely gowns, one dating back to the
1930's. Having a bunch of pictures of strangers wearing old style
clothing, unless I know them or happen to own the clothing, holds little
interest. My 2 cents. :)

I agree, I love to look through old photographs of strangers, for
several reasons. Unless it was a particularly interesting photo, where
I was more interested in the back drop, I'd have no reason to buy or own
it. I can't explain why people like them, but in my little side
business, if it sells (and it's legal), I don't question it! ;)

My grandfather and father were professional photographers . Basically
between them the photographed our town from horse carriage, removing
the bricked street to replace with modern cement. Grandfather used to
ride a mule out to the lumber camps and take photos there. Both
grandfather and father held county offices of one kind or another over
the years. When the county began talking about setting up a museum
they came and talked to my father. As a result there is a room in the
museum devoted to their work as photographers, their photos showing
time lines, events, people. New stores that came to town and
developed into larger businesses. The old cherry wood cameras and
associated equipment is there as well. An uncle became a photographer
further north in the state. A distant cousin stated a photography
business in town as well.
Side Note: I cannot recall one single family gathering, celebration
meal, etc. that we got to sit down to hot food. First one of the men
would get up and photograph the group, but because he wasn't in the
picture, he'd go back to his seat and pictures began again.
They've been extensive articles in the local newspaper about each as
they passed -- full page spreads because they had touched on most
everything at one time or another during their lives.

This is my attempt to make you rich. Collect all the old photos that you
can find. When you have enough, sort them (the sort is the key) and
publish a coffee table book.
Do coffee table books still exist? I suppose that everybody, nowadays,
are staring at their mobile phones. It's a pity. I tried ;)

What about a coffee table book app? Subscription based. New coffee

If you have a recipe that is particularly important to you or your
family, photo copy it and put it in a different place than your
regular recipes.
I've lost the original of a bread recipe that is one of my signiture
bread recipes.
Thankfully I have a copy of the original. I'll make another copy to
store with my folder of special recipes.
Good Advice.
Janet US
It's excellent advice. I have several recipe boxes that have
hand-written recipe cards (mine and my mother's) but I also have photo
copies of the ones that are important to me or recipes I typed in from
those cards and printed out over the years. :)
Jill
On a related note, it's good to photocopy old family photos. I've
slowly done bits of my grandparents photos over the years. One fire,
and all can be lost forever. A copy on a flash drive or CD can even be
stored in a safe deposit box.
When my mother dies, I'll throw away all the old family photos along with
the rest of her stuff.
Cindy Hamilton
I've got tons of family photos, lots of family members long dead, never
had a chance to meet them. The pics meant something to my parents and
to the family members who took them but I'm not particularly attached to
most of them. Some of the ones taken around the turn of the 20th
century are very cool to look at, from the perspective that photography
was still fairly new and sitting down for a formal family photo was an
expense for middle class people.

I have this pic of some sort of school pageant for Valentine's Day.
Note the title written at the bottom of this photo print I found among
my parents' photo albums:

Loading Image...

Okay, it's silly. Kids behind a heart shaped wreath dressed in wedding
clothes. I don't recognize anyone in that photo. It's fun to have but
I have no idea who those people are.

It's excellent advice. I have several recipe boxes that have
hand-written recipe cards (mine and my mother's) but I also have photo
copies of the ones that are important to me or recipes I typed in from
those cards and printed out over the years. :)

On a related note, it's good to photocopy old family photos. I've
slowly done bits of my grandparents photos over the years. One fire,
and all can be lost forever. A copy on a flash drive or CD can even be
stored in a safe deposit box.
When my mother dies, I'll throw away all the old family photos along with
the rest of her stuff.
That is the best thing anyone has posted here in a long time. : )
You mean, you interrupt your expensive drinking session just to say something unkind like that?

I don't drink in the AM, not even on camping trips anymore,
and how was that unkind? I say *way* unkinder stuff than
that every day, usually a bunch of times.

I like your "John Kuthe songs"... "Hey, John Kuthe..."
I can see them as 45's playing on a portable record player...

should listen to this first to get into the musical groove.

That is almost the perfect kuth song. But there is so much material

It would probably be too log for a CD though.

Popeye, when yoose die, there will be a mile long line of people
waiting patiently to piss on yoose grave.

Yoose heirs will throw out (or sell) all yoose shit, as quickly as
possible. Few will even touch the artifacts.

Why? I have no siblings, no children. I haven't looked at any of those
pictures in 50 years. Why should I care about them?
Cindy Hamilton
If you've been holding on to them for 50 years you must care about
them. If you have no one to leave them to donate them to a museum...
they may contain artifacts that you don't care about but a museum may.
Often museums are interested in the outfits people wore in the past...
50 year old shoes may be of interest to shoe maufacturers, very often
hair styles are of interest, even eyeglasses, especially old jewelry.
I think it's very foolish to toss old photos in the trash, some would
be interested but they are irreplaceable. Fifty years ago is not all
that long ago, your family might have friends who would like to see
those old photos, old schoolmates. You are not an
interesting/valuable person... when you die you're not worthy of a
headstone, it'd be best to flush your remains down the toilet like you
were never born. Everyone of our cats who expired has a marked grave
with an engraved headstone. Are you telling us that that you will die
a virgin, that no man will remember having fucked you? No woman is
that ugly.

If you've been holding on to them for 50 years you must care about
them. If you have no one to leave them to donate them to a museum...
they may contain artifacts that you don't care about but a museum may.

If you have a recipe that is particularly important to you or your
family, photo copy it and put it in a different place than your
regular recipes.
I've lost the original of a bread recipe that is one of my signiture
bread recipes.
Thankfully I have a copy of the original. I'll make another copy to
store with my folder of special recipes.
Good Advice.
Janet US
It's excellent advice. I have several recipe boxes that have
hand-written recipe cards (mine and my mother's) but I also have photo
copies of the ones that are important to me or recipes I typed in from
those cards and printed out over the years. :)
Jill
On a related note, it's good to photocopy old family photos. I've
slowly done bits of my grandparents photos over the years. One fire,
and all can be lost forever. A copy on a flash drive or CD can even be
stored in a safe deposit box.
When my mother dies, I'll throw away all the old family photos along with
the rest of her stuff.
Cindy Hamilton
You'll be very sorry to have done that...
Why? I have no siblings, no children. I haven't looked at any of those
pictures in 50 years. Why should I care about them?

The only reason I like the old pics my parents kept is the clothing
people were wearing. I didn't know the people in the photos but I've
always been a fan of "vintage" clothing.

Yeah, did you notice I posted I have a necklace my grandmother was
wearing in an old photo from 1914?

If she doesn't know who is in the pics they aren't something she'd want
to replace.

Cindy Hamilton
I'm curious, do you think that your indifference to these things stems
from not having a great relationship or much interest in your family?
If I didn't care for family members (I feel that way about a few of
them), I don't think I'd personally take any interest in their
belongings or photos (except for things that I could turn a profit on).

To build on that, do you find things from your marriage sentimental at
least? Such as, wedding band, wedding photos, etc. It seems like you
really care for your husband. If he passes before you, I can't imagine
that you'd load those pictures and such into the trash bin.

My first impulse would be to burn her crappy house to the ground,
but that would make it more difficult to sell the tiny lot that it
sits on. I suppose I could donate it to the city as a pocket park.

Once he's not in his body, it's just so much meat.

enjoys Cindy's (and a few others) takes on food, and that's why he's
