Well, it’s been a while since my last post! The summer was filled with so much fun and travel that my blog fell of my radar for a while. Time to get back to it …
In 1978, President Jimmy Carter signed a proclamation that the first Sunday after labor day would be National Grandparents Day. So here are a few photos of grandparents and their loves from the family files …
Happy Grandparents Day to all of the Nanas, Pappys, Omas, Opas, Pop-Pops, Grandmas and Grandpas out there!
I posted a few pictures of the Moms in our family tree. Sadly, I realized that I do not have nearly the same number of photos of the fathers in our tree. I’m not sure if the Dads were behind the camera, or there were more pictures of the mom and baby or children. So here are the few pictures that I have … and Happy Father’s Day to all the Proud Papas out there!
This is picture of my husband’s mother, with her parents Mary Simko and Michael Petrun in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, circa 1936. Michael’s cousin Irene owned the beauty shop. The Petruns lived on the lower East Side of New York City when they first arrived in America.
I honor of this day of love, I searched around my family (and hubby’s) for Valentine’s records, marriages or pictures … nothing! Lots of marriages in December and January, but not much happening in February! I did find this clipping in the Cubbage Family Bible … I wonder which family member clipped it from the newspaper?
So no Valentine’s marriages or love letters, but here are some of the oldest pictures that I have of family couples:
I wish that I had more older pictures, but I am very thankful for those that I do have of our families. Do you have any Valentine’s marriages in your family? How about your oldest family pictures?
