WORDLESS WEDNESDAY - March 13th - Honoring my Mom & Dad

I don’t think I’ve ever written a blog post specifically about my own birthday.  So, here it is.  

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves as this is supposed to be Wordless Wednesday.  Or as Randy Seaver of GeneaMusings says “Not So Wordless Wednesday.”  Because it’s hard for a blogger not to write a little something.

Born in Detroit, Michigan - what were the headlines 100 years ago and in 1950?

On the day before my birthday, in 2016, I lost my Mom.  Because of that my birthday will never be quite the same. I miss you Mom.

Happy hunting,

Michigan Girl

  1. So lovely to see your young parents, and you as you just started your life. I'm sorry that your mom left just as you turned another year older. Of course you'll miss her and have a different feeling about your birthday, since you were so connected!

    1. Thanks Barbara. As long as I am still on this earth, I will tell their stories. It was a turbulent household, but I loved my parents very much.
      Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Great pictures Diane! And Happy Birthday again. Great post to honor your birthday.


I look forward to reading your comments. If you have any connection to the people mentioned in this blog, please let me know. I write about mine and my husband's ancestors and would welcome new information or meeting a new cousin or two. Thanks for visiting and come back soon.
