This is currently the oldest picture I own!

I have been quite obsessed in my search for my family history.  My Grandfather unknowingly lit a spark inside of me for this quest of mine.  There are no other family members that share my quest and I am running out of time to get all of the information that I possibley can from the remaining members of his family.  There is so much information and I don't have any idea where to begin to organize it all!
I love old photos.  I am not even sure that I care who the people are in the photos.  However, I have become quite frustrated in my quest to identify people in all the old photos that I have been able to find.  There wasn't a whole lot of writing on the back of any of the photos that I have been able to obtain.  I am guilty of it too.  I just don't always have the time to write it all down. 
My children will be grateful to find that the majority of my collection of photos are now digital with tags on all that I can identify!  I can only hope to pass on a slight glimmer of genealogy obsession to my wonderful kids.  If not them I can hold out hope that my future grandchildren will find some love for the past!
