So friday night I started emailing back and forth with Moiya who is my 2nd cousin 1 time removed! Which is just fancy terms that she was my Grandfathers 1st cousin. Moiya was kind enough to share photos with me that she had of my Grandfather as well as family stories that I never imagined I would hear.
Invaluable pieces to the puzzel which I loved hearing.
(from left to right) Bernadette and David Keenan with my Grandpa Joe in the early 1980s
The adults pictured are my Grandpa Joe and Grandma Lucille with 8 of the oldest children
Louise in the 1940s with her daughter Florence
Louise in the 1950s with her granddaughter
Time to get back to my research..
