Family Pictures, Family History

My childhood Home in Panama

My Childhood House (In Panama)

***********
Recently, some blogging has been done about some of my family members in Panama. I want to share the stories with everyone.

Read the stories about my grandmother, Mamacita, and about my great grandmother, Abuelita Sabina, on my mom's blog.

My 3rd Birthday - Abuelita Sabina is on the right

Another wonderful story about my Tio Juancho can be found on Melissa, the Cooking Diva's blog.

Sitting Around Tia Yaya's house - making more family history


*****************
Reading all of these stories has reminded me that I really need to investigate more of my family history and make sure that it gets written down. (from both sides of the family) What a gift it is to be able to pass stories down to future generations.

Julissa,

I got her by reading the comments on the Cooking Diva's site.

You are correct. We all forget to record the important stories about our families until there is no one who remember the stories.

Your family has a rich history. Record it. I so enjoyed the poem about your uncle.

one of my first projects as a grad student was to interview all of my aunts to construct an oral history of my family from the 1940s-1960s. it was rewarding. i think it would be a great idea for you, too!

Thanks everyone!

I cna't wait until July when I will take a whole new set of birthday pictures!

I will also be working hard to take down as much oral history as I can so I can come home and write it all up to treasure forever.
