You have met at least one of your 8 great-grandparents. Amirite?

Top Comment

As far as I know, I feel kind of lucky because 5 of my great grand parents are still alive, 1 is deceased, and I was never told about the other 2. I have met 4 of them if you count phone calls but 1 if you mean in person. The reason I feel lucky though is that a lot of people where i live only have one that is still alive.

REALLY?
I don't even know what my great grandparents look like
photos weren't all that popular then and there

I met 3 of my grandparents
the fourth one died when my mom was 6
only my dad's dad is left

my mom's the youngest daughter and her oldest niece is her age
but my dad is the oldest son and his oldest niece is younger than me
so my dad's parents are much younger than my mom's late parents

also
on my dad's side
I'm pretty much the tallest girl
but on my mom's side
I'm pretty much the shortest girl

I know this doesn't really relate
but I felt like sharing

I've met one of my great-grandmothers, but the rest all died before I was born.

I've met 5 in person and 4 of those have died since I was born. 4 of the 5 were on my moms side because they had my mom really young and she had me really young.

Often the case. I figured this would be about a 50/50 vote. My wife never met any. My last living grandfather died when my son was 2 so they never really met but I have a picture of him holding my son, with my dad and me in it. Four generations of firstborn sons together. I love that picture.

Yeah, I've met my mom's maternal grandparents, who both just celebrated their 100th birthdays. The rest have all passed away. (sad)
It would be so cool to be able to meet them because they'd be able to tell me so much about life in Bangladesh over 80 years ago.

Yeah, my family is kind of young in general. My maternal grandmother is only 57.

I believe my grandma's family on my dad's side was Jewish and I'm pretty sure the other ones were in work camps for disagreeing with the Nazi party or something of the like

I wonder if I have any Jewish relatives
I don't know much about my family history
I have no clue how I'd trace any of it
