COMMON GROUND: Tea and Genealogy
Hey TEA Fans…who also shares the interest of Genealogy?
Share below :)
Oooo me! I only met two of my grandparents (okay three but he only visited once). My father’s father had lost his speech due to a stoke (his wife died of one before was born) and my mother’s mother was a very bitter woman, both died before I was in high school. I never got to hear stories from them and so I go searching for them instead.
There were many tragedies in my grandmothers’ and great-grandmothers’ lives and I try to remember and honor them (sometimes by setting aside a cup of tea). I have framed photos and displayed them with mementos like lockets, watches, mirrors, keys and kerchiefs and have made dolls (poppets) of my great-grandmothers. http://www.flickr.com/photos/77346789@N06/7846064226/in/photostream
I have be scanning and uploading all the family photos I can get my hands on have been sharing them with my siblings and cousins. I also have family trees on Ancestry.com (though I am no longer have a paid subscription as well as MyHeritage.com I also have done research farther back to Irish and Scottish clan histories and what not.
Glad to hear! I didn’t know my Mom’s Father…he passed away before I was born. I have 4 different ‘sides’ of family Facebook Private Groups started. Mostly…my roots are Norwegian, Irish, English, German, and French.
Ooo Norwegian, neat! I’m Irish, English (with a background in everything else: Scottish, Welsh, Dutch, French etc) on my fathers side and German and Hungarian on my mother’s side.
