This is a compilation of old, silent home movies of the Hernandez Family of Austin, Texas and Chicago, Illinois. The movies were digitized in no particular order. It appears that they were shot between 1965 and 1968 or 1969.
Some of the images are poorly shot in bad lighting. The Hernandez-Sada wedding reception in San Antonio was particularly difficult to recognize even the bride and groom. Still, images of playing football in the street outside of the rented house in Austin at 93 San Jacinto are clear. And there's one shot of sliding down the hill to the river on cardboard boxes.
In addition to Hernandez, we see Sada, Avila and Gonzalez family members. We also see street and neighborhood scenes of Chicago and Austin at various moments.
A special remembrance to the late John "Shotgun" Hernandez who purchased the camera in the 1960s and was primarily responsible for the existence of this family record.
