A Call for Photos

Great grandfather

Imagine a newspaper or magazine without photos.  It would be pretty dull.  The same is true for this blog.  We need interesting old family photos to tell the history of the family.  I know those photos exist.  They are stored in box on the shelf in your closet, or in the old trunk in your attic, or they are framed on top of the shelf in your living room.  They are precious memories and one-of–a-kind family heirlooms.  But they all can be scanned.  And once they are scanned the digital files can be sent to me for use on this blog.  Then they can be seen by all the family members.
Relatives in my branch of the Ambruso Family have shown great interest in learning about the other branches of the family and seeing pictures of second cousins they never knew they had.  These pictures were meant to be shared.  Together let’s form a history for future generations to enjoy. 
Any photos that I have used thus far have been the kind contributions of just a few family members.  We need more, especially from Giuseppe’s family in Philadelphia and Michael’s family in Connecticut.  Please scan your old photos and send the files to me at  We all thank you for your contribution of photos.
