“These pictures are a family treasure,” Aunt Emma had written to my father when she sent him the two time-worn, tattered photo albums. Long ago, when the books were new and their pages crisp and empty, my grandmother had opened each one and pasted in pictures of her brothers and sisters and the faraway places that had drawn them all away from her. Many years later the books were given to me; through the photographs, I met family members I had never known, traveled to places I had never been and revisited a part of America’s past. Welcome to the story of my journey.
