Welcome to the Potter Flats Family Photo Album.
On Saturday, September 27, 2003 a ceremony was held at the gravesite of the Unknown Confederate solider to honor both him and our ancestors from the Potter flats who were his mourners and have been his caretakers for the past 138 years. I have added some photos of the ceremony.
Our Potter Flats Album contains a wealth of family photos from the past and present. To view a photo just click on its name in the left column. We hope you enjoy your time here and find something to assist in your family research.
Photos are a bridge to the past for genealogy researchers. They literally bring our work to life. The people we research are more than just data and facts that are gleaned and filed away in a folder. They once lived and are the reason we exist today. It is our belief that when family photos are shared with as many family members as possible the chances of loss through unavoidable circumstances are elemiated. This lesson was learned by us at an early age when many unreplaceable family pictures were lost when our grandmothers cabin was destroyed by fire. As is the case in many families there is the keeper of family history -- our grandmother was our family history keeper.
We urge you to share your photos with others and bring the past to life for someone else!
As you visit our genealogy pages you will also find photos on many of the pages. When we have located a photo of a family member listed in our various genealogy pages we have included it on their respective page to enhance the page and make it more than just a fact page. It is our hope that when you leave our pages it is with a deeper understanding of those you find included here. They lived, loved and when they died it left a void in someone life.
I welcome and invite you to submit family photos for inclusion to this site. Please send me an email and I will be happy to advise you on how to submit your photos to aid others in their research.
Thank you and please visit us again.
