Today, at the age of 65, I have laid eyes for the very first time upon the face of my grandmother, and found that I have had a photo of my grandfather all along, and assumed it was of the brother of his who adopted my mother after my grandfather died.
This points up the importance of labeling your photos! We all have those unidentified photos which we wish had been labeled.
The photo of my grandmother is completely new to me. With her are her two older children, my uncle and aunt. But my mother is not in the picture. Judging from the apparent ages of the two siblings in the photo, this was taken after my mother was adopted by her uncle and aunt.
I have been waiting and working for this day for a long time. All I can say is, "Wow."
I may show these photos in this blog later. I need to get agreement from my cousins first.
I'm just glad this day finally came.
