Friday Night Photos

I figured I'd do a different sort of Friday Night Photos today. On Wednesday, my Aunt Mickey and I went over to my mom's house so we could go through old photos and I could learn about my ancestors. I'm not so much interested in the "where did I come from?" stuff, but I am very interested in stories--I want to know all about the lives of my grandparents and great grandparents.

We just barely touched the surface of it on Wednesday, so we are going to get together again. My aunt told me to hold onto the photos; I plan to try and figure out who a lot of the people are before then. (I have a free two-week trial of Ancestry.com, so I'm trying to get as much info as I can in that two weeks!)

Even though I don't know who a lot of these people are yet, I am super intrigued by the photos! I believe they are from the late 1910's and early 1920's (my mom and aunt think that the little girl in a lot of the photos is my grandmother, who was born in 1914. So that would make sense.

Anyway, if old photos don't interest you, you'll want to skip this post. But if you find them as fascinating as I do, here are a bunch of them!

This first photo is probably the only photo that exists of my grandmother with her parents. Her dad was, in my grandma's words, "a bum". Haha! Unfortunately, he chose not to be a part of her life. She was an only child, and her mom insisted that her grandchildren call her "Aunt Jule" instead of "grandma"--apparently, she did not want to feel old!

And I'll end this post with this beautiful picture of my grandma! (Who I affectionately know as "Gobby".)
