Knee Deep In My Roots

I didn't have any random thoughts this week.  I may have to re-vamp Thursdays. 

I have been so consumed with my family history.  I have some of my Grandma's photo albums and I am scanning and saving pictures so that anyone who wants a copy can have one. 

I only recently found out that my Papa (Grandfather) had a sister that passed away when she was only 13.  I don't know if it's because I have a 13 year old of my own, but I have been slightly obsessed with finding pictures of her.  So far I have come across 3 and I just think they're are so special.

This is one of my favorites of her.  I love how everyone is dressed up.  I also kind of like how her's is the only face you can really see.  There are so many pictures of everyone else, I like how this one is kind of just hers.




I also came across a photo of my dad on a swing that reminded me so much of my nephew.  I always think my sister's son looks so much like his daddy, but in this picture I do see a little of our genes in him.



Here's a picture of my nephew at the park.




I am really enjoying all of the pictures and history and questions.  I am going to spend the day with my Grandma next week and she's going to help me fill in some of the blanks. I can't wait.

Happy St. Patrick's Day !

I love all the old phots--they are fantastic! Isn't it amazing to see the resemblance in your dad & nephew?!? There is a picture of my dad when he was about 5 sitting in the grass grinning & my nephew looked so much like him in that picture at the same age...but, most of the time he looks like my brother in law! Can't wait to hear more stories!
