It was here in Warsaw, that the Hatch family would become pioneers to a new community and leave an accomplished and indelible mark in American history. While investigating the contents in one of the boxes, I noticed a pair of intriguing photographs. The two images were of a stately man and woman, dressed in their time-period finest. The couple looked like they had stepped out of the movie, Gone with the Wind, and into my picture frames.
These images are not your typical family snapshot or Polaroid. The two pictures are under glass and encased in an unusual plastic-like material frame, and to view the image you must tip and tilt the picture sideways to make out the incredibly sharp details. I had never seen this type of photograph before. I asked my mom if I could have the pictures for in my room. I kept them out for a long time, until my two children were born. I knew their little fingers would not benefit these old pictures, so I put them away…for the time being.
When I became interested in genealogy, one of the first things I did was to bring the pictures back out. I suspected there was probably a family connection, after all the pictures were kept with the family memorabilia my mom had inherited from her parents and her aunt.

The family of the late Whitney Houston has nabbed a reality docu-series through Lifetime to showcase how families heal themselves through major loss and tough times. The network ordered 10 hour long episodes premiering later this year. Not sure how I feel about this, but here’s the synopsis: The Houston Family Chronicles follows those closest to the pop music icon as they try to pick up the pieces after her untimely death. A mother to her own teenage daughter, Rayah, Pat understands the difficulty of raising a young woman in a world where social media and peer pressure are the norm.
As she tries to guide her own daughter into womanhood, Pat also has the responsibility of raising Bobbi Kristina, who, while trying to move forward with life and make decisions about her future, must also learn to cope with such a devastating loss. With the certainty of a microscopic lens focused on this young woman and her every move, Pat, Gary and their tight-knit group of family and friends are committed to seeing that Bobbi Kristina can grow and experience life unscathed.
And Pat says she’s doing this to help other families heal themselves: The unexpected passing of Whitney certainly affects the direction of the show. However, it is my hope that others will be enlightened as they watch our family heal and move forward. Working on this for years? Will you be watching?
