This Web site contains many of my family's, and my, pictures collected over my lifetime.  I scanned many of these from the original 35mm slides or prints my father took before and during my lifetime and those I took before the advent of digital cameras.  Many, perhaps most, of these were taken in India and Nepal between 1940 and 2000.  Some are of intervening years spent in the US or traveling to and from the US and South Asia.  Some, of course, are of family events (e.g., my daughter's wedding), and some were taken by other members of my immediate and extended families in the US or during their many travels.

So, why India & Nepal?  The short story is that my father, Henry Ankeny Lacy, was born and grew up as a 4tth generation missionary kid in Fuzhou, China and returned to China in 1944-45 with the Office of Strategic Services.  My mother, Elizabeth Pickett Lacy, was born and grew up as a third generation missionary kid in India.  They met when they were students at Whittier College in California and married there in 1940.  With China now closed they shortly found themselves in India as Methodist missionaries and by 1947 had three children -- Ruth, Jessie, and me.  My two brothers (Doug and Brent) were born in Detroit while we were on furlough in the early 50s, and we returned to India in 1953.  The five of us children attended Woodstock School in north India (Mussoorie), where my mother and her siblings schooled, while my parents worked in Moradabad and Ghaziabad, U.P.  I, in turn, found myself in Nepal with the Peace Corps immediately after college and ended up working there on and off for nine years.  North Korea is on the list because I worked there with CARE and the Word Food Program in 1998 and Indonesia because I had an extended vacation in Bali and Sulawesi in early 2009.

I have several hundred of my father's slides yet to convert to digital format, and will add those as I slowly work my way through those boxes.  If you move your mouse over the pictures above, or the subject areas on the left, you'll find links to image collections from various periods of my life.  (I'm still working on some of these pages...)
