Insta Great Gram Day

Today is Insta Great Gram Day.  I'm not an instagram person; haven't quite reached that level of technology yet, but I would like to celebrate Insta Great Gram Day along with some of my fellow bloggers. 

I've posted briefly about my grandparents before, but today I would like to honor my great grandparents Albert Smith and Mary Ann Storton Smith, who as young parents left their homeland and lives in Harlestone, Northampton, England, and immigrated to America in 1882.   They worked hard all of their lives as a butcher and a homemaker, and left a legacy for their posterity here in America.

What do you know about your grandparents, great grandparents, and other ancestors?   A great place to find out more and to share what you do know with others is www.familysearch.org/photos/.  Just now I found some new photos of Albert and Mary Ann that I didn't have before:

Albert and Mary Ann as newlyweds

Mary Ann was able to return to her native England to meet Albert after he completed his mission there and they returned home together.

 Go ahead, take a peek,  find some great-grandparents and have some fun!

  1. How neat you were able to find more photos of them! I love seeing pictures of my ancestors and looking to see what physical features have been passed down.
