This album grew out of six decades of accumulation of photos in albums made by the Chen family members and stored in our Avalon home in Fremont, CA since 1999. Its purpose is in part to preserve the family history in terms of special events like weddings, graduations, birthday celebrations, vacations, career-events, milestones. It not only provides a compact and convenient summary for each of the Chen family members including Linlin, Waifah, Eric, Arnold and Brian, but it also documents some early photos of the Chen siblings of Eileen, Waikai, Waisun and Helena and Hsuan siblings of Jason, Eddie, Bakey and Jim and cousins of CiCi and Hollis Jr, Joe, Miranda and Vicky, Jerome and Melissa, David and Patricia, and Betsy, and Mike and Anna, Fred and Pam, JaJa and Herman, and Eileen and Jonny.
For reasons of brevity, and because it is assumed that the readers who are interested in this collection are mostly family members of greater Chen and Hsuan families, the emphasis is on chronicle the Chen and Hsuan family events with brief titles for each event rather than detailed explanations.
The organization of the album is indicated by the table of contents that is separated by each decade starting from 1940 decade and ending by 2010 and beyond.
