Atlanta DeCoutos

In the "Did you know?" Dept., Jean was born in Miami and Tony came over from Bermuda in his teens. Miami is where they met, married and brought your humble web geek editor into this mortal coil. After a brief 2 years with the Air Force in Columbus, OH (the only time I saw snow in my youth... and that's a good thing!), we came back to Miami bringing Matt and John with us. I guess it was the least we could do considering they were just babies and all. After getting settled in the house we were to grow up in for about a dozen years, David, then Lisa came along.

My story is, after I graduated high school (1973), instead of me leaving home, my family left home! They decided they were going to move to Atlanta right as I was beginning my professional music career in Miami. Needless to say, I stayed in FL but Atlanta is where they've been ever since, except for Matt, who somehow managed to marry into a family in Detroit even larger than ours! Must be gravitational pull, y'know?

Anyhoo, (as granma Helen would say), after working steady in the nightclub circuit for several years, I came to L.A. to goof around for a couple weeks... back in 1980! And I have been in CA ever since, but every now and then, we'll meet up in our "second' home base, and here's the pix to prove it.

Up and Flyin'! Decouto Family Blog!

With this site, each branch of the family tree can have their own pages as mentioned above, so.... break out those old boxes of photos, go down to the local electronics store and get a scanner ( $50-100), read the simple directions and start archiving those valuable ( and increasingly fragile!) pix on to a reliable hard drive, then back 'em up on cdw, thumbdrive, dvd (anything that'll last a few hundred years). Even better, use online services like Flikr, Picassa web, so you can access your images from anywhere.
Scan the photos for storage at the highest possible quality, then convert copies to 72 dpi (dots per inch resolution). That's a manageable file size to send pix as an email attachment. To publish on the net, that's as good as it gets (for now). OR snail mail a thumbdrive to:
