Welcome to John and Susan's Archive



The Pictures In This Archive

This web archive is very preliminary. For one thing, the pictures need to be organized better. At this point the pictures have been grouped into different ways in the various categories, and in several cases they as simply grouped into pages with 30 pictures, in the sequence in the album. At some point they will be grouped into logical categories and titles and text will be added to the pages.

Note that for the web page, the pictures have been resized to be quite smaller so they can be loaded in a reasonable time and easily viewed. If anyone wants the original pictures with higher resolution get in touch with us and we can send them to you on CD.


Foote Family Photos

Earl and Dorothy Foote have a number of pictures that they have accumulated over their lifetime.

Foote Family Photos from a Variety of Loose Pictures
These are a set of pictures that have not been organized into albums. These pictures have been organized slightly into logical pages but within each page they are pretty random. There are almost 400 pictures here.

Foote Family Photos from the First Album (A)
These are a set of pictures that were in one of the Foote Family albums. These pictures jump around in time a lot, but have some very general sequence. These seem to be most of the older photos so this is labeled as the first album. There are a little over 1,000 pictures here, organized into pages of 30 photos each.

Foote Family Photos from the Second Album (B)
This is another set of pictures from Foote Family albums. These pictures also jump around in time. There are about 180 pictures here, again organized into pages of 30 photos each.

Foote Family Photos from the Third Album (C)
This is another set of pictures from Foote Family albums. These pictures also jump around in time. There are about 270 pictures here, again organized into pages of 30 photos each.

Foote Family Photos from the Fourth Album (D)
This is another set of pictures from Foote Family albums. These pictures are all related to a trip that Earl and Dorothy took to Germany. There are just over 100 pictures here, again organized into pages of 30 photos each.


Holte Family Photos

Most of these are slides that were taken by Junius Holte from before Angie and Junius were married, to their marriage, during the times when Caroline, June and John were born and were young children in Yorba Linda, CA, and on through living in Turkey, Taiwan, McLean, Turkey again, McLean again and then ultimately back to Southern California.

First Set of Holte Slides
This was a preliminary set of slides that I scanned.

A Much More Complete Set of Holte Slides, Organized Differently
This is a basically complete set of the slides that I scanned and they are organized into some categories that make some sense, but there are a lot of mistakes, and a lot of work still to be done. Also, within a category the pictures are in no particular order. The pictures also need to have text added to them with the date, description, and list of people. I am waiting on Caroline and June to finally put some work into that... (is that rather pointed?) There are over 2,000 pictures here.


Susan's Albums of Photos

These are pictures that Susan has had mostly in albums that start with some historical pictures, but then mostly when she was very young. Then it progresses through her growing up, through high school, college, her marriage to David Shaw, and through the birth of their daughter, Holly. It continues through their and Holly's life up until the early 1990's.
At this point this is a work in progress. There are at least 12 albums and these are organized at this point merely by album and then grouped into about 30 photos per web page. They are pretty much in chronological order and the already have text and dates associated with them.

First Album (A) of Susan's Photos
This is the first album. This covers the period up to 1976.

Second Album (B) of Susan's Photos
This is the second album of photos. This covers the period 1976 to 1981.

Third Album (C) of Susan's Photos
You are probably picking up the pattern, this is the third album of photos. This covers the period 1981 to 1982.

Fourth Album (D) of Susan's Photos
I probably don't need to tell you that this is the fourth album of photos. This covers the period 1983 to 1984.

Fifth Album (E) of Susan's Photos
Just for the sake of argument, let's say this is the fifth album of photos. This covers the period 1984 to 1987.

Sixth Album (F) of Susan's Photos
OK, OK, just let me say that this is the sixth album of photos. This covers the period 1987 to 1988.

Seventh Album (G) of Susan's Photos
Is it really necessary to note that this is the seventh album of photos? This covers the period 1988 to 1990.

Eigth Album (H) of Susan's Photos
This is the eigth album of photos (is that spelled right?). This covers the period 1990 to 1993.

Ninth Album (I) of Susan's Photos
We're almost there! This is the ninth album of photos. This covers the period 1993 to 1994.


John's Pictures from Negatives, Slides, and Scanned Photos

These are pictures that John took from the time he got his first camera, an Olympus P-EE, in Tokyo in about 1960. Since then he has gone through at least a dozen cameras and was very deep into developing and printing, also. Most of the pictures record his growing up and the things he did on up to the early 1990's. However, many of these pictures are attempts at some kind of art so there are some strange pictures here.
At this point this is a work in progress. John was very much into photography and took thousands of pictures. Most of these have been already scanned but they need to be organized in some fashion.

Various Holte Family
This is a set of pictures that John took typically while visiting in California, but some are in other places. There are a number of classic family groupings in the set, some very early Apalategui Reunion pictures in 1962, a couple Hagen Family groups in 1962, a number of group photos of the Holte Family in the 1980's, and more...

Pictures from Turkey
This is as set of pictures that John took while in high school and living in Turkey from 1964 through 1967 and traveling around the country. Some of the travel was with his parents but most of it was with a variety of friends.


John and Susan's Photos

These are a number of pictures that John and Susan have taken together, starting in the early/mid 1990's. Many of these are pictures scanned from negatives followed up by pictures from the two digital cameras we have had. Most of these have already been scanned but need to be organized for use here. There is nothing here, yet.
