New Photo Albums

I have an old VHS tape that is full on home movies from the Early 1950s. Most of the filming took place in Racine and some in Canada where they would go to on fishing trips. These movies were taken by someone on my Dad’s side of the family. I am not sure who many of the people are, but my father as a young child as well as his sister Gloria and his parents Edward and Betty Jocius are on it quite a bit. I was able to capture some still shots from the film. I also have a few stills of some Racine landmarks and the 4th of July Parade which used to go down State Street.
I never met my grandfather Jocius as he died before I was born. My grandmother passed when I was around 12. And my dad died when I was 23 (he was 46). So, it is quite nostaglic and even a bit tear jerking to watch the video. But I also find it incredibly interesting.
Hope you enjoy the pictures. I will get more Racine shots on there soon. It has become quite a project since I am also putting the tape onto DVD.
