Vintage Photo Friday - Family
This Sunday a few of our cousins from Northern California are coming to brunch! Jason Katz found me through the internet. Our families had lost touch over the years. He and his wife recently had a daughter and Jason wanted to fill out a geneaology chart for her and find out more about his father's side of the family, so he went searching.

Both Jason's father and grandfather passed away early in life...that's how our connection was lost. I'm so glad that Jason found all of us. We have branches of the Katz family in SoCal, NorCal, New Orleans, St. Louis and beyond!

We've maintained an e-mail correspondence for about two years. Jason has been fairly successful in hunting down cousins all over the country, calling them on the phone, collecting photographs, etc. Luckily, my Auntie Mae was the keeper of her parents' photo album. She recently entrusted me with the photos. Our cousins all over the country have been helpful in identifying the people in our vintage collection. I've been sending digital copies to many of our distant cousins. The album, along with Jason's geneaology chart and information will be front and center in our living room on Sunday! I look forward to grilling Auntie Mae and my mother, Roz for more family information. See y'all on Sunday, cousins!
