Grandma prepping breakfast
Aunt and uncle
And grandpa shaving in the mirror of the car
Side not can anyone tell me what car that is I admit I have not tried to find out on my own but I figure someone here will probably know what it is.l

I learned how to drive in that '47 CJ-2A, it would pop out of 2nd gear when going down a hill and it took three pumps of the brake to get a solid pedal, I learned to be on my toes at the early age of seven by driving that, as there were hills to deal with occasionally, absolutely loved it, it was such a thrill to get to drive it, still love Flatties to this day .
This was right when we moved to a huge (over a 100,000 acre) cattle ranch that my super awesome crazy smart Dad bought in 1972 when he got us the fawk out of MI with all the riot BS going on, he worked for GM and was the shop foreman for Chevrolet Warren truck dept., and had enough, thank you Dad, Love you and miss you immensely .
I'm the cool one in the straw hat on my Dad's lap
Sorry if I rambled, maybe i was just suppose to put up a pic

I just landed a MAJOR genealogy score last week!
I have been researching my family history for 15+ years, and could never find any record of my great-great grandfather's Anthony's parents. I had their names from his wedding certificates, but that's it. No record of them at all.
He came over from Alcase-Lorraine in the 1870's and spoke German, and I knew he came over with 2 brothers, a Ferdinand and a John. Ferdinand stayed, John went back to Germany. One of my great aunts supposedly went over there in the 1960's to find family and they told her that the church burned down and all the records were lost.
Well, last Tuesday night I was bored at work and just started plugging in dates and names in google to see what popped up. I found Ferdinand on like the 5th or 6th page of search results in some French dude's family tree...
And sure as shit, BAM! He had my great-great grandfather listed, along with his parents. The problem was the names are now all frenchified, so it's JEAN not JOHN and the maiden name of Anthony's mom, which I thought was "Gester" is actually spelled "Goester"
So this French guy has that side of the family going back to the 1600's..
I about fell out of my chair. For more than a decade I have been trying to find this information...
So I e-mail the guy who owned the tree. HE was floored that I found him!
He has sent me a ton of documents and info that no one in my family had any clue about. It's all been lost to history! My great-great uncle John (Jean) was in the German military in 1875, and his son died fighting for the Germans in WWI. But now all the family that I have left in alcase speak French.
I sent him a picture of my great-great Grandfather Anthony and his kids. (John in the back is my great-grandfather) Which is the first one posted below. And then this weekend, he sent the 2nd picture posted. Apparently my great-great grandfather sent his brother in Alcase a family picture taken in 1904 when he got married again. If there was ever any doubt about if we are actually related, this picture erases that doubt. No one in my family has EVER seen this picture! It's also amazing that it survived 2 world wars!
I am beyond stoked to actually find family in Europe. The guy who sent me the picture is a distant cousin.
