Re: Everyone must be....

I am progressing through this morass, but feeling more and more
that it's wasted effort.  Several years ago I began to write an account
of the family and my childhood, really thinking that my granddaughters
should really know their family background. I have offered it to all the 
sons, but the only persons interested have been my middle son's 
second wife and her daughters. These step-granddaughters are quite
interested since it describes a sort of life they had never even thought
of.  They are quite bright girls and I am very fond of them.  None of the
rest have even bothered to read it.
I haven't even begun to process the many boxes of slides, and I don't 
think I will.  I will give my carousel of NYS Protected Plants, which has
been the basis of an environmental lecture for some years, to the State
Garden Club office.  Beyond that, I don't see the point in keeping the 
others.  Who looks at slides today?  And I don't think it's worth paying
to have them put onto tape, when probably noone would bother to look
at them.  I used to enjoy photography, and was pretty good at it, but
at this point, I'm pretty frustrated.

Auralie, I completely agree with you about throwing the whole lot out. 
Several years ago I had my mother's 8mm movies put on tape to discover that 
her brother had "edited" them into a mess with no chronological order. 
While they were fun to watch my grandchildren have shown no interest.  I 
also have one 8mm reel of plantation hog killing from about 1950.  I've no 
idea what to do with it with the exception of offering it to the Center for 
Southern Folklore in Memphis or maybe the University of MS.
