Best Picture goes to Love Family ca 1902. This photo is precious because it shows three generations on my maternal side. In the background is the house where my mother spent much of her time when she was growing up visiting her grandmother Love and great aunt Margaret. It was just across the lane. My grandfather Love is holding his youngest sister. My great grandparents Love and my great great grandparents Robinson are also in the photo.
Best Screen Play goes to Black Sheep Canadian Ancestors Key players in this drama would be my fourth great-grandfather and all his fellow travellers, William Berczy and Charles Williamson. The dramatic scene would be the riot. Who would play the characters? I do not know. I do not watch enough movies to name actors and actresses to play the roles. Who would you suggest?
Best Documentary goes to a pair of carnival submissions about Summer Vacations - Sauble Beach and Manitoulin Island. I have fond memories of both places and I am pleased that I have photographs to illustrate that part of my life.
Best Biography goes to My great Aunt Margaret. I chose this one because I am thankful for the family history information and the photographs she took that have enriched my understanding of the maternal side of the family.
Best Comedy goes to the photo of two of my paternal uncles. They both have the mischevious twinkle in their eyes. "Okay, what mischief can we get into today?"
