A few weeks ago, my good friend MoneyGal posted on Facebook asking her friends to comment with their grandparents’ names. She wanted to see if the names from long ago were “in style” or out of style now. There were a whopping 55 comments and I loved, loved, loved reading them. So I am totally stealing the idea.
Related to this, I have just started looking into my and Mr. FamilyNature’s family trees. I didn’t know all of my grandparents’ names when I posted on MoneyGal’s wall, but I do now. Over the past few days I have loved seeing a bit of my family history, learned a few really interesting – and even some scandalous for their time – tidbits, and connected with a couple of long-lost cousins.
I don’t ask much of you, dear readers, do I? I would love it if you would comment below with the given names of your grandparents.
My grandparents were Maureen Monica & Donald Lee and Mildred Viola & Charles Henry.
Mr FamilyNature’s grandparents were Basil Emerson & Julia Helen and Lawrence Joseph & Margaret Mary.
