Ruth's Genealogy

“And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.”

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… ;)


52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy by Amy Coffin is a series of weekly blogging prompts (one for each week of 2012) that invite genealogists and others to discuss resources in the genealogy community including websites, applications, libraries, archives, genealogical societies and more. You do not have to be a blogger to participate. If you do not have a genealogy blog, write down your thoughts on your computer, or simply record them on paper and keep them with your files.
