Once I have made contact with a "new" family member, I like to include a picture of one of their relatives. I have recently made contact with Marsha Veltri, daughter of Elizabeth Kate Bostwick, granddaughter of Grace Amelia Riley Bostwick Carr. This blog and our tree on Ancestry.com enabled Marsha to see pictures of her great grandparents (Tom and Lizzie Riley) for the first time.
This is what this is all about, sharing with the current generations and maybe giving them the interest in learning more and sharing what they know. Maybe she could see a glimmer of herself, her cousins or even her own kids in the photos.
Here is a picture of Theda Hill and Grace, taken in Florida, January 1949.
