Picture This! is Dedicated to Preserving the History of Families

Archiving these items will be a treasure for my children and grandchildren.  As I entered a museum in Louisiana, there was an eternal flame burning and the words surrounding it were:  “A people without a history, are a people without a future.”  I am thankful that Picture This! is so dedicated to preserving the history of families.  My favorite scanned image is a photo that my father took at my grandparents’ farm in Wisconsin…take a look for yourself at the beautiful image that my father captured and Picture This! archived for me and my family.”  ~Beverly, Austin, TX.
