The Bee is doing a big project for school that involves digging up family history. She is featuring my Mother as the subject. So she kindly asked my Mom to send her any photos and stories she had.
This was in the package we just got.
This is my Great-Grandfather’s Mother’s Sister.
I think that makes her my Great great great Aunt, Concetta.
We don’t know a whole lot about her, except that she married at 13 (in Italy), and had 19 children over the course of her lifetime. This picture was dated 1903.
My Mom said that she would always come over when my Mother was a child, and pinch her cheeks really hard. She didn’t speak a word of English.
I love finding connections to a world long gone. The wonderful stories that span generations help us hold the threads of our family chain together. I am so glad some of these stories are still alive to give to my children.
Do you have stories of your ancestors?
