We have a lot of exciting stuff going on around here right now. Our second-oldest son is getting married this Saturday, so as you can imagine, we are pretty busy with wedding activities.

So, this week's 52 Ancestors post will be brief. I thought I would share a photo of my maternal grandmother, Sarah Vasques Madeira, that I haven't shared here on my blog before. I've written about my Grandma Sarah several times on my blog. Here's a list of the blog posts I've written about her in case you'd like to read them.

  1. How exciting, Jana, to add a daughter-in-law to your family! Your grandmother is beautiful. I wonder what she was looking at when the photographer snapped the shutter. Definitely not him.

    1. Hi Nancy,

      Yes, we're so happy for our son and his now wife. I'm writing this after the wedding. It was beautiful!

      That's a good question about what my grandmother was looking at. Perhaps he directed her to look away from the camera?

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Congrats on your sons wedding! :) This is a beautiful picture! :)
