We don’t often post links to personal blogs here, but these posts about memories of life in Faith, North Carolina are a charming description of the role that making and watching home movies plays in personal and local histories.

Part 1

Part 2

Tragically, the blog Lost in Light has announced that it is going to that great web server in the sky.  Over the years, Jen and Aaron have rediscovered countless home movie collections.  They offered free film transfers and were instrumental in encouraging creative uses for home movies, and graciously posted their transfers on for the world to download and share.

They end with contributions from the home movie and snapshot Flickr collection, The Owls Go, which is definitely worth a visit on its own.

One of our favorite websites, The Boat Lullabies, has posted a clip of home movies of an art fair in the Lake Meadows neighborhood of Chicago’s South Side. The Boat Lullabies and its related site Square America are dedicated to found snapshots, slides, and occasionally home movies. Better yet, the South Side clip was transferred by our comrades at the South Side Home Movie Project.
