52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy Week 38: Funny Ancestor Stories

Leave a comment

Tell us a funny ancestor story that stands out in your mind. When did you first hear the story? Do other family members tell different versions? Does this tale play a large part in your family tree?

I can’t think of any funny ancestor stories just now (lotsa sad and tragic, but not funny), but how about a funny photo?

Unhappy Nanny

This is a photograph of my grandmother, who just celebrated her 96th birthday in October. She looks to be about 6 years old, which would date this image to about 1922.

She certainly seems unhappy about something… ;)
