Family History

Last blog, I mentioned my aunt passing away. Over the last couple of weeks, I have been diligently sorting through her family genealogy records my cousin sent me. Many of the items were photographs of family reunions and 50th wedding anniversaries. Of note were letters my grandmother wrote to one of my aunts back in the 1940s. It was interesting reading, especially about my 2-year-old brother and one cousin as playmates. My single mom worked at a department store Monday thru Friday, and half day on Saturday while her older sister and grandma babysat. Another letter spoke of my mom’s youngest sister’s activities at music lessons, choir practice, school play rehearsals, and volleyball and basketball games. Made copies and scans to send to cousins.
