Treasure Chest Thursday – Family Photo Bonanza!

I haven’t posted much to the blog because I’ve been working on a rather large photo project. I’ve been scanning and uploading close to 1,000 family photos. Most of the images are from the Lowry and Pepperney families (my paternal line).

This project really started when my grandfather Charles Lowry passed away in 2007. I was just beginning to take an interest in genealogy. It was a year or two later when I was at an aunt’s house when I first laid eyes on the photos. I was so early in my genealogical research that I didn’t know who most of the people were. I knew they were family, in some cases distant, but I couldn’t put names with the faces.

Fast forward to this past summer and I finally feel like I have a firm footing on the Lowry family line. When I started, I knew so little about the Lowry family relative to my maternal lines that I really made a push this summer to learn more. The photos have proven invaluable making the history come alive.

You can view these photos by clicking the link below. I’m still working on captioning them, and some have generic file names which I hope to adjust. Doing that for 1,000 photos is not an easy task. I would appreciate your comments and corrections, either here, on Facebook or on the Flickr pages themselves.
