|grandmother, Mavis Fanshawe Garrett nee Long|
The more I do genealogy, the more I realise how lucky I am. Many branches of Mum’s family didn’t move around much, and were hoarders.
This has meant that Mum now has a large collection of old family photos, letters, certificates, books… and of course Mum has inherited the hoarding trait!
And, I know my husband would say that’s something she’s passed on to me.
Nanna loved ‘family’, so to celebrate her birthday this year, I will post 6 generations, from her grandmother down to her great granddaughters (who she never met but would have loved like she loved us).
