I’m staying up late the last few nights — my scrapbooking stuff all over the dining table — working on a scrapbook that my mom and dad and I are making for my grandma (my dad’s mom) for her 90th birthday this week.
It’s fun to look at all the old photos, like this one of my grandma in high school: (Now that’s some lovely ’30s styling! She reminds me here of Elizabeth McGovern in Racing with the Moon.)
And here’s my grandma years earlier, making her first communion with her sister. This is in 1933. Love their matching dresses and veils:
There was even a picture of my great-grandparents, Rok and Mary Mihaly, on their wedding day in 1915:
And even one of my great-great-grandfather! His name was Joseph Horvath. He was Mary’s father:
It’s really amazing looking at these old photos — I’d never seen them before.
Have you ever had the opportunity to look at photos from your ancestors?
