~ My father was Portuguese (b.'14). His father came from the Azores, his mother was born in California, but her folks were from the Azores also. An arranged marriage. Am told the family name was originally "Gaspar."

~ Mom's mother was solid Scottish, born in Princeton CA, her great-grandparents were from Glasgow. Mom's father was Welsh and French. He was from New Jersey.

~ Mom and her sister were born in Oakland. My two older Brothers were born in Oakland also. The rest of us were born and grew up mostly in Palo Alto. with several years spent in Mexico and Hayward.

~ The old family photos are fun, thought provoking, and emotionally stirring to look back on. I feel fortunate to have a collection.

~ I feel sorry I didn't get to know those well that were living when I came along. They were mostly going and gone by the time I was in my teens and before one had the chance to make adult conversation.

~ My mother (b.'16) outlived just about everybody from her generation, some just by several months. She passed in Aug.'05 while traveling in Mexico.

~ I will add to this gallery occasionally as I encounter pictures those before left behind.
