One island family’s journey through the years…
When I think of long term islanders, I usually think of the last names such as Guard, Sundstrom, or Nash. But now I will definitely remember Boe!
Megan Kilpatrick-Boe’s family has been living in the islands since 1885 and has a rich collection of memorabilia in the form of pictures and assorted objects.
Enter the digital age.
Meagan created a blog entitled San Juan Sepia, on which she is posting bits of the memorabilia and telling the story behind each piece. You’ll see how the people, town, lifestyles, and even landscapes (see photo) change over the course of time. It’s easy to draw a connection between favorite island activities from the County Fair to picking blackberries from back in the early years to present day.
Thanks Meagan for sharing your family history with us!
