Our home movie collection pictured as a stack of reels is thanks to my brother Pete who edited and spliced the short regular-eight rolls of three minutes into four-inch reels that run around 16 minutes.

May 8, 2024. We have lost our brother Peter early this morning when he died in his sleep at home in Bellingham with his wife Donna and son Robert by his side.

With the footage digitized, I am making the next round of edits, with the mission of creating bite-size movies from the historic footage, as shown above.

The death of our younger sister, Sara, in 2018, notched up our motivation to take on this project now, and it’s dedicated to her memory.

I’m happy to report the collection of our home movies as digital clips organized by year has been completed.

Now the joy of telling the stories with/about the clips begins.
