I love finding out new things about my family history. My fathers mothers side has the history traced back to the 1500s.

This photo is of my mothers mothers side of the family. They would do performances for charity!

Grandma was a party girl. When grandpa died she went out every weekend to the vetrans hall down the street and danced til dawn. She was on every trip to Reno with the church too. Everyone knew her and enjoyed her company. We really miss her on the holidays.

Very cool, Teresa.

In doing some family research on the net, I found a site that had the 1881 British census. It had my grandfather's parents listed in their hometown in Wales (Blaenau Ffestiniog). My grandfather wasn't on there as a member of the family because he wasn't born until 1896, but some of his older siblings were. It was such a neat find!

Gee that is so sad that you don't have any old photos. I wish I had a scanner so I could get more on here. The ones Iposted were retouched to fix the damage they had from age.

Those are really cool pictures! And your grandmother was a doll! She has that little mischievious twinkle in her eye.

I wish I had the pictures of my mom in the hula skirt! She was 3 or 4 at the time. What a cutie she was then!
