Gorgeous Grandma Day | @GeneaBloggers

To go along with tomorrow's (July 23rd) Genealogy Blogging Event of Gorgeous Grandma Day (you can check out the rest of the weeks events here) I found my Nana Shirley's 1948 High School yearbook picture! I was trying to find a way to show you just her photo through my ancestry family tree but since I could not find a way here is her yearbook page! It's from Ancestry.com's U.S., School Yearbooks, 1880-2012 on the page her pic is the second one from the top on the left.

Twinsters :: Twin Sisters Finding One Another

Okay I know this is not my regular type of post for this blog but I couldn't resist. I had heard over the news about Asian twins being separated at birth before over the years [--like this one--], "Twinsters" being the most recent, and while I feel for them ... all I do find their stories fascinating especially because of how much I am into genealogy.

Here's an article about Sam & Anaïs...

And .... LAST NIGHT ... I finally watched their documentary "Twinsters" through Netflix! It's soo sweet! I recommend it to any of my fellow genealogy lovers out there!! Check out it's trailer here:




POP!
