Every Tuesday from now until the end of the quarantine period we will be hosting our Exhibit Me HLOM Program. This program is meant to be an interactive blog in which you as community members can share with us!
This is an extraordinary period we are living through, and any content we receive from you during these challenges will be added to the Museum’s digital collection.
While alone at home, missing the wonderful collection at the Holland Land Office Museum, we were itching to look through our personal collections and we hope you can add some of your collections as well.
Jodi, the Museum Marking Coordinator, loves genealogy. She lives with her husband and two young boys so she decided to invite her boys to view her collection of family photos. Check out their experience:
Here my oldest son ( and sloth standing in for his little brother) is looking at a family photo taken after my great
grandfather passed and my grandmother and great aunt are 3 years and 18 months old respectively.
Here you will see my oldest (and stand-in sloth for his brother) looking at a photo of my Great Grandfather's family (on my fathers side) from Italy.
Here my oldest is looking at photos of his grandfather and great aunt as children and then his great aunt when she graduated from nursing school. These photos are so import because his grandfather passed away almost three years ago and it is good to keep his memory alive. I also love to look back and imagine my father as a baby.
Here he is looking at the wedding photo of his Great Grandmother. She passed away more than three years ago so some of the memories he has are faint but he loves to ask me questions about her.
Rules for the #exhibitmehlomprogram Challenge:
Pick 3-5 objects to exhibit!
These objects can say something about you, your family, what you like to collect, what is important to you, or your experience in quarantine
Interpret your pieces!
