365 Photos Day 11
I've been digging up bones again. It amazes me what I can find when doing family history research. The gentleman in the photo is my Great Uncle Charlie Luke. He was the brother of my Granny Bessie Luke Vigus. This was taken somewhere in Cornwall, England.
I never met Uncle Chalie. I did however meet his beautiful bride (pictured with him) my Aunt Maggie. In fact, Aunt Maggie attended my high school open house. Somewhere packed away I have her photo from that day.
I currently correspond with my cousin Rick Luke who is their son. Rick and I have been writing and e-mailing for several years. I remember when Rick came to visit cousins in America. He was probably 18 at the time. I could hardly believe that handsome young man was related to me. I was probably ten or so when he came.
This is not the first time I've found a photo tying me to my past. It's an amazing thing to do. Search your roots.
