Family Photo Friday ~ Do You See A Resemblance?

Do you see a resemblance in the photographs above? I do but then I am probably biased! The photo on the left is me on my 1st Birthday, July 21, 1963. The photo on the left is my grandson, Easton. I took that picture of him in November or December of last year when he was about 19 or 20 months old. 

As an adoptee when my kids were born I had so hoped that one of them would like me. I never saw me in them in their physical looks but their personalities and mannerisms were and are a lot like me. However, when I saw these photographs sided by side I realized I think Easton looks a little like me. 

Happy Friday Everyone! I have a dinner date with my favorite little fella and he wants chicken, french fries and a milkshake for his dinner! See you soon Doodlebug!

The Little Pedigree Chart That Went Viral

Last week my fellow blogger, J. Paul Hawthorne of GeneaSpy
created a colorful birthplace pedigree chart using Microsoft Excel. He then posted his chart on Facebook and from there it exploded on not only Facebook but Instagram, Twitter, Google+ and probably every genealogy blog that is currently active. 

I am a little late to the party with my chart but better late than never as the saying goes! This is my family birthplace chart. As you can see it is not very colorful because my parents, grandparents and so on all were born in Kentucky with few exceptions. Thank you, J. Paul Hawthorne on a fun exercise! #MyColorfulAncestry
