Here I share photos from my mother’s side … the Beauchamps. The bulk of the photos I share on these pages are from my Great-Grandmother’s photo album, May Melinda Beauchamp … wife of Haws Young Beauchamp. I present them for my extended family. As I look around the internet I actually see photos of the Beachamps, the McElroys, the Johnsons, Dunagans, Ables … and they aren’t even attributed to the right person, or the persons in the photos are not those people.
As I stated, I have these photos in hand, and I scanned them. Of course for space and speed I have uploaded lower resolution images here. I can, if you are family, provide you with a high resolution scan (up to 48 bit color, 12,800 dpi). I would be happy to do that … that’s what posting these are about in the first place, to make them available to my extended family.
These images are raw scans. I have not cleaned them up. That can be done and I will do it with some over time. I will colorize some as well (I do that for fun). Colorizing only effects the digital image, not the original photo.
As I post these photos, I make comments about them as I know the information, or I believe to know the information. In some cases, I share was was written on the backs of the photo by May, Ethel and my mother Jackie. If you have additional information, or I have the wrong information, please tell me. In fact if you are family, contact me, I would love to get in touch!
Its going to take some time to get these up, I have a bunch … and I mean a bunch! I started on November 5th or 2018 … but I will do it eventually and when I am done I’ll say so here. Not all will be individual photos, some will be in sheets (4 to 6) for speed and space, but again, I can provide individual, high detail scans.
