Favorite Picture of the Week

*Photo Credit: FamilySearch.org*

Last month I was bored and started Googling some of my older family members names. One name I searched for was my dad's aunt. Imagine my surprise when a picture of her appeared on a website with 2 of her sisters. So on the site I was able to find my paternal grandmother's picture and this was one of the family pictures of her on that site. This picture is from 1864 and the little girl standing up in the back is my grandma Mary Evans. She's with her siblings and her parents (My dad's grandparents). My dad had never seen this picture of his mother as a little girl so he was really excited. I imagine that one of my relatives posted all the pictures on the site that I found of my grandma and her family but I have no idea who.
