Meeting Florence and Jack (again)

I am so excited today! My favourite part of researching my family is when I meet a new family member. Yesterday Julie Heard got in touch to tell me she found my blog, and she kindly sent me lots of photos including one of her great grand-aunt and uncle. Here they are in 1965!

The only other photographs I have seen of them are from many years previously.

I can’t tell you how excited I am to have the opportunity to get to know Julie and her Dad. And to get to know more about Jack (my grandfather’s brother) and his wife Florence. There is so much to learn, it’s going to take some time, but I’ll be back here sometime to write all about it.

 

 

 

About Jackie Dinnis

Welcome to my blog where I am enjoying meeting my family - past and present - one at a time. Join me as I learn who my ancestors were, where they lived, what their occupations were and what everyday life was like for them.

    Wonderful contact. Eager to hear more.

    • Thanks Janet, so busy enjoying myself putting the new photographs in order and trying to make sense of who is who! It takes me ages to sort these things out, but when I do, I will post about it!

    Isn’t it such joy to find living relatives. Good luck with your new research avenues.

    Fabulous news, Jackie! I too have had some “meetings” like this, but I am so behind in blogging about them sigh. Enjoy the new pix and the new relative!

    • Thanks Luanne, I’m getting behind in blogging too! So much to say, so little time! Great that you’ve had some ‘meetings’ and I look forward to hearing about them when you have time. I guess it’s more important to enjoy the meetings, and the people, than it is to write about it? xx
