After my post last week with the old wedding photos of my mom and my aunt, I was given a tip by a new follower to check out a site called Sepia Saturday (by the way, thank you ALL for your beautiful comments on that post). Sepia Saturday is a blog where people share historical photographs and stories of family history. It looks like fun so I thought I would play along this week.
This photograph was taken in 1908. My aunt recently came across it and gave it to me because she knows I have been collecting old family pictures. It is hanging in my apartment in a nice frame, so this is actually a picture of the picture because I didn't have time to take it out of the frame to scan it.
My grandfather on my mother's side was a fraternal twin. We don't know for sure which baby is my Pop-Pop, but I have decided that he is the one on the left when you are looking at the photo...it looks a little like him to me. The two people holding the babies are my great-grandparents. I never met any of my great-grandparents on my mother's side, but was fortunate to know both of my great-grandmothers on my father's side until I was about 12 or 13 years old.
My aunt and I have been talking about trying to do a little research on our relatives in this branch of our family tree. Maybe we'll start that project soon. Have a great weekend all!
