Full Circle 64

During the winter of 2011 I featured an entire album of photographs. It was called the Nettie Parks Album.

Antique Photo Album

I purchased the album at an antique shop. 

It held many photographs. They were all mailed to Diane in Washington.

Hi Connie,

I did recognize a few more PARKS family members in the photos, but need to go over more thoroughly.

Thanks again. It is a treasure.

The photos can be found beginning at Photo Number 420 and ending with Photo Number 457.

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)

  1. That's it?! You provided someone loads of family photos & all you get in return is that brief "Thanks again."

    1. I understand that you mailed the photos and kept the purchased album. Am I correct?

    2. Maybelline, I sent Diane the album and the photographs. She was willing to pay me what they cost me..so I felt it was only right:)

  2. I agree, that photo album alone I'd want to keep. That woman is lucky to have it and should be more gracious.

  3. Wow! If I did the math correctly, that was 37 photos sent home!!! :) Whooooo weeeeeeeeee!! I never thought I'd see this album go home, month(s?) of research and I kept coming up with dead ends!

    How is Diane related? Inquiring minds wanna know!

      Thank you so much for purchasing this beautiful album and posting online. I have very recently made some comments to some of the photos with names and dates.

    2. Emma Park was John Wesley Parks sister and Nettie Parks sister in law. So I guess I would call Diane a great great niece to Nettie and John:)

  5. What a treasure trove--not to mention, gorgeous album cover! So glad another set made it home! Nice to know how everyone tied in together, too :)

  6. That album is just magnificent.
    I have also re-united a number of photos and postcard collections with ancestors, often after doing quite a bit of research to find them. Some people have been overwhelmingly grateful. Others have had almost an accusing attitude along the lines of "How did you end up with my family's stuff?" While gratitude is always nice, I have to remind myself that it's really more about getting the things back to the people who have a connection to them. A beautiful album like this one would be tough to part with though. You obviously have a big heart and a generous nature.

  7. The album is beautiful, your work and research in posting all those photos was time consuming and absolutely incredible. I agree, the gratitude is nice, but as someone who also posts old photos online, I always wonder who has MY FAMILY PHOTOS and hope that they will come back to me someday. I agree with Christine that it would be difficult to part with this lovely old album but you obviously love what you do and enjoy the results. I salute you!
