MORE PAST HISTORY


As I said before, I am not a fan of facebook but it really has come up trumps this time.
I am finding relatives from long ago and am in contact now with three of them.

A second cousin has sent me a photo of my Dad holding the little girl in the last picture I posted.
I notice that my Dad has a cap on and he continued to wear a flat cap for as long as I can remember.


I was also sent a picture of my Dad's parents holding another one of my cousins.


I still have this Grandad's old watch chain and have made it into a bracelet and my youngest son has his old pocket watch.


I remember him teasing me with the fish, I think it would be ivory as plastic wasn't about then and not sure what the chain would have been made of, I'm pretty sure its not silver.

All this is so fascinating and I wish I had been in touch with these relatives a long time ago as we are all in our late 70's and 80's now but it's nice for my kids and grandkids to keep.

    1. i am from Spain I feel very happy to share my great and wonderful testimony with everyone on this platform..: I was married for 7 years to my husband and all of a sudden another woman came into the picture he started hating me and he was abusive and all because i never bear him a child. but i still loved him with all my heart and wanted him at all cost.... He filed for divorce and my whole life was turning apart and i didn't know what to do, he moved out of the house and abandoned me all alone,one day a very close friend of mine told me about trying spiritual means to get my husband back,so i went online to search and i came across so many spell caster who only wasted my time and took a lot of money from me,but i went back to her and told her that spiritual way has only taking my money and not yielding anything, and she introduced me to a spell caster, Dr gbojie, so i decided to try it. although i didn't believe in all those things because of what i have gone through lately, i contacted Dr gbojie  and he  explain all my problems to him and he told me that i shouldn't worry that when he cast the spell on me and my husband that my husband is going to run back to me and that within 2 weeks am going to get pregnant,so i did the little he ask me to do and behold it all work out,my husband run back to me and right now we have Twins Girl and a boy,so all thanks to Dr gbojie  you're indeed a great spell caster, in case anyone needs help here,  whatsapp him now +2349066410185 or email him : gbojiespiritualtemple@gmail.com

  2. I have heard others say they found friends from the past and family members, but you hit the jack pot with getting photos like this. I would love to see a photo of my parents or family, from the distant past.

  3. I'm a new follower of your blog, I share a love of crafts, also! It's nice to see someone making good use of Facebook, my family found out about a lost aunt/sister a few years ago through there, but the story surrounding it was more scandalous and I don't think anyone is super close to her as a result, even though they've tried to be. It's nice to hear a happier tale of rediscovered family. These photos are lovely.

  4. Awesome, you good fortune continues with finding family. I'm so excited for you. Understand your feelings completely about wishing this had all happened sooner. I had something similar happen. Found a family with same last name as my Dad, living in an area not far from his family; but all my growing up years was told they weren't relatives. By the time I found out they were, they had all passed. So sad, so you keep at it. My hats off to you. Such wonderful sweet photo's.
