A few weeks ago Keith borrowed some family films from his cousins to have it converted to a digital format.  There is a total of 4 hours of film, one portion is from 1939 and the 8mm film is from about 1962-1966 then there is some 58mm film with sound from about 1978 & 1979.  As you may have guessed by now, this week I began my task of assembling this into chronological order and eliminating the bad portions so that we can get the family together and learn who is in the footage and circumstances of the events. There is footage of Keith’s paternal grandparents, his parents, siblings, aunts, uncles and cousins.  I’m excited about the outcome but the process will be laborious.

Here’s a portion featuring Keith, when he was about 2 1/2 years old, and his father while the family was stationed in the Philippines.  Keith’s uncle visited them and thankfully brought his camera so we have this film today.
