Walt Disney Family Museum. If you had enough stuff, you could consider opening a family museum. If you were Walt Disney’s family, you could build a spectacular museum. That’s just what the Disneys have done. Located in the Presidio in San Francisco, the museum just opened in October
Photos of my models. Michael Paul Smith is a model builder who also takes photos. What he’s done with Gator board, styrene plastic, plus numerous objects; such as jewelery pieces, finishing washers and printed material is utterly amazing. Thanks to my brother, Dave, for telling me about this site.
A little bit of family history. Katy Gorrell says she learned more “about my family history in one weekend than in 20 years” after taking possession of some 2,000 color slides taken by her grandfather. Here she shares some of the photos and the stories behind them.
Preservation Nation. Much of our history is preserved in its buildings. Grand homes, elegant schools, even log cabins. This site is “helping people protect, enhance and enjoy the places that matter to them.”
Face to face with the 'lost' Diggers of Fromelles. It’s been called Australia’s "worst 24 hours." In a World War I battle in tiny Pheasant Wood near Fromelles, France, some 5,533 Australians were killed on July 19-20, 1916. Australian researchers Sandra Playle and Tim Lycett have spent the past two years trying to build family trees for 191 men whose bodies are believed buried in a field below the Fromelles church.
