We shed a few tears going through old family albums. There were pictures of my beautiful mother, still in her teens, with long dark hair, prior to and in the early years of marriage. Pictures of my dad, with thick hair and sideburns, which thankfully went out of style in the 70s, but are humorous to look at now. Photos of lost, but still loved, grandparents and great grandparents.
I will share some of these in time, I'm sure, as I sort them and begin to tell the story. But, I wanted to share this treasure. This is my maternal great grandmother's family Bible. I'm not sure when it was given/received because none of the information was filled in, including the family tree, which was a disappointment. But, there were many treasures to be found in Grandma's Bible.
My great grandmother completed "Successful Sunday School Teaching" on October 21, 1947. There were also membership certificates for her and my great grandfather for the church they attended in the 1950s.
This is my great grandparents wedding picture. They were married in either the late 1920s or early 1930s. I'm going to have to find out. I think I can find that information fairly easy. But, I love that this photo has both set of their parents as well. I have never seen pictures of my great-great grandparents before! (Aimee ~ Guess what I will be dabbling in the this summer?)
Here are my great grandparents and my grandmother. She was born in 1934 (I believe).
This is my great grandmother (on the left) and her brother. I'm not sure who the women are, although their first names are on the back of the photo. The little girl is my mother.
