I wrote about my fascination with my Family History a few weeks ago. That little bit of reading and research has fueled a total addiction to researching my family tree (also seriously loving ancestry.com). The research and work is a really complicated puzzle. It taxes my brain a bit, but when I happen across a great find like the following family photo, it makes the whole thing so exciting and worthwhile.
The following photo was not directly connected to any of my immediate relatives, but when I opened it, I recognized my Great Grandfather right away, then my Great Grandmother, and beside her my Great Great Grandfather. After that, I realized that just about all (if not all) of the people in the photo are family members.
The research makes me feel connected to family members that I never got the chance to meet. I love piecing together facts and getting to learn about their lives.The following are a couple of my favorite photos of my Great Grandparents. It is all just amazing to me.
