Re-Post: Ryder Family Videos by James J. Finnegan Vol. 1 Title 1

This is a second attempt to get the You Tube video to open.  This is almost 16 minutes long.

In addition to research, photos and personal recollections, there is a video record of our Ryder family which was created by Jim Finnegan with his 8 mm camera in the 1950'sand 60's (often with a light bar on the top of his camera as I recall, leading to some eye-shading and giggles).  I am not certain that these are in correct date order but it's apparent from the children's ages what approximate dates each was taken.

The film was transferred several years ago by Kathleen Finnegan Hiatt from 8mm tapes to DVD's and in January, 2016, by the Greenpoint, Brooklyn, New York video service DiJiFi to .mpg4 format videos.   They are uploaded to a YouTube Channel and the permanent link is inserted below.

With the permission of the Finnegan cousins, here is the first of the videos. This is my first experiment with YouTube and I know the link below works.  It is possible that ads and or music may pop up.  If I can find out how to avoid them, I will repost  This is the method I could find for videos over the 100 MB limit on Facebook.  Click on your screen with a mouse or finger with tablet or smartphone and a slider appears which will allow you to drag ahead to a specific location.

This is our family and people related to them and the places, parties and times of the 1950's and 1960's.
