B is for.....birthdays
April 26th would have been the birthday of two of my Great Aunts.
Both were incredible women, true inspirations and it is to them that I owe my love of history and in particular my interest and obsession with my own family history.
Rose (picture right) was born on 26th April 1900 and passed away aged 94 years in 1994.
Ellen was born on 26th April 1910 and passed away just one week short of her 99th birthday in 2009
Sounds like some great genetics for long lives in your family. I hope you inherited it all.ReplyDelete

So, how's your Family History research - hit the brick walls yet?
I have a few 'dead ends, myself - including a man of mystery who appears on 1841 census, married, fathered 10 kids and then dissappears......darn him, my 2xG-Grandad!!!
SueH I refuse to go quietly!
Thanks for stopping by SueH. I have hit several brick walls and every now and again revisit and hit my head on them!ReplyDelete
Thanks Debra & Susan for your kind words.
Birthdays, great post for the letter B and I love the photo!!ReplyDelete
Found you from the A-Z Challenge, looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun, with maybe with a little bit of stress thrown in!! I’m now following you on GFC and I hope you have a chance to check out my blog!
