If you are a fan of Saturday Night Fun here is a new one
It's Saturday Night again -
time for some more Genealogy Fun!!
Here is your assignment if you choose to play along (cue the Mission Impossible music):
1) Dana Leeds on the Enthusiastic Genealogist blog asks "Did/Do Your Children Know Any of Their Great-Grandparents?"
2) I thought that would be a great Saturday Night Genealogy Fun question - so please share your response with us in a blog post of your own, in a comment on this blog post, or in a Facebook or Google+ post.
3) For extra credit, or in case the answer is "No," then please answer the question for yourself, or
Yes. Both of my sons got to know one great grand parent and meet another. My grandmother; Anna M. (Switkowski) Alajko. She died in 2003 when they were 8 and 2. They have recently met my wife's grandfather; Elmer R. Wilson. He is still living at 93 but because of difficulties in the family they have not gotten to know him. Even though he lives 15 minutes away with their grandparents the odds seem slim they ever will see him much at all.
Although not a great grandparent to them they were able to meet Carmen Cammarata Sr. and Mary Milazzo. They were my wife's mother's father and mother in law from her first marriage. He died in 2009, she in 2005.
My oldest was one but never met or knew about my father's mother: Loretta A. (Noice) Harris. She died in 1995. Other than one phone call in January of 1995 I never spoke to her either.
