Grandfather and Girlfriend?

The man in this photo is my grandfather, John H. Ziegler. I believe this is the same girl in the photo yesterday. The back of this photo says John Ziegler and girlfriend.

Flip-Pal Scanner

Just a little update on my progress with the Flip-Pal which I received for Christmas, so far I love it, it's easy to use, it is fast and makes very good scans.
This photo was scanned with the Flip-Pal. I scanned the photo in 2 sections and then used the Flip-Pal program to stitch the photo together. Looks good I think. I have been using the Flip-Pal to scan some albums.  The only think I can complain about is that you have to use  other photo editing programs to crop out the white area when the photo isn't as large as the scanner bed.

Another photo of mom from her cousin, I'm so happy to get these pictures, we didn't have a copy of this. It is always neat to see the pictures others in the family have of your family.

School Days 1941-42

Recently my mom's first cousin sent me some pictures of the family which she thought I would like to have! I don't think I remember seeing this one of my mom, she would have been about 17 years old. Mom said that she made this dress.

My new photo blog is

My Goals

My goals for 2012 are to do a better job blogging here on Genealogy Fun. I hope to do some research. Scan more pictures with my FlipPal. I have also started a photo blog 365 Pictures of 2012. I know another blog is the last thing I need but this just seems like fun.
I was reading Graveyard Rabbit of Sandusky Bay , 52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy,week one Blogs.
I was reminded that my first follower was Terry Snyder at Desktop Genealogist Unplugged. She isn't blogging now but I still miss her. My second was Becky Jamison at Grace and Glory. I guess you always remember your first followers, they were both so helpful. I was lost when I first started my blog. Since then there have been so many wonderful bloggers, I do not want to name them because I wouldn't want to leave anyone off the list.

I have enjoyed several photo blogs during 2011 so I've decided to start a photo blog for 2012.
