My Great Grandparents

Well, my find-a-grave project has already led to some ancestors! I found a 12-year-old online post made by a not-so-distant relative who has been working on her family tree for years. Last night, she sent me pics of ancestors that I've never met. She also sent my grandfather's lineage traced back to the 1600's!
I had previously known about only one of my four grandparents, so it's really exciting for me to learn more and see their faces. This couple, which lived through the Great Depression, looks far less stern than I was expecting. His cigar-puffing swagger cracks me up!
I can't wait until my new-found cuz gets the rest of them scanned.
