As we revisit our ancestors, their stories and their lives, it is always fun to peek at some old family pictures.  How serious they were in those days.  Didn't the photographer ever suggest they smile?  Here then is what we have been able to collect and share.  They document not only the Hill and Lafler families but many of the various connections as well.  We will start with our two principals - Lloyd and Helen (Lafler) Hill.
