Digging In The Past Again 2

My great-great grandparents on my father's side. I can see my father in my great-great grandmother's face.

Interesting, la p.  I have all sorts of photos from way back when.  No one in my family cares about such things except me.  I like that you posted this.  If my scanner ever worked, then I might try to do the same thing.  Do you feel any connection to these people?

I don't actually have these photos, Ally.  Someone in another branch of the Shannon line has them and posted them on  Any connection? Not really. When I first saw the photo of my g-g-grandfather I thought of abolitionist  John Brown. My g-g-g  is a bit scary looking.  The photo of my g-g-grandmother is so blurry I can't get any impression of her so I don't feel connected to her either.  I do find the photos fascinating though. These people are part of me.

I wonder about that, too.  Digital copies are so much more fragile that paper.
