Photos, Videos, Social Media Links
This page will contain links below to a variety of photographs, videos and social media accounts of family members.
The Colchamiro Family in Florida circa 1947 at the wedding of my Aunt Diane. This is the video she made of that time and others through the years. She captured these events on the newly purchased 8mm video camera. A legacy for us to share.
We have so many family members who are on social media and share their passions for the things that they wish people to know, about them and their work.
First is a movie of our family from 1947 into the mid 50s. My Aunt Diane had an 8mm video camera and took these films. There are several sections of the movie, the first of Aunt Diane and Uncle Nat spent their honeymoon at the Blackstone Hotel in Miami Beach, Florida. Other footage shows many of the family on The Ella, swimming and splashing at Menachem's Hole in Sheepshead Bay area. Moving on are family gatherings. Enjoy the compilation of movie that Aunt Diane and Uncle Nat took over the years.
The oldest of the siblings. This is a video/photo album of picture throughout the years.
