This is a photograph of the wedding of my aunt and uncle, Stella Skrobul and William McManus. From left to right are James Mc Manus, Veronica (Skrobul) Mensing (sister of the bride), Stella Skrobul and William McManus.
Here is the only formal portrait from my parents' wedding on April 24, 1954. This portrait is in a cardboard frame from the "Swiss Chalet, Bismark Hotel, Chicago". From left to right are Clarence and Margaret Sharp, and Edwin and Ann (Skrobul) Brady.
Welcome to Couples Week on Kathy's Genealogy Blog! Over the next few days I will be posting photos of some of the couples on my family tree. I'm beginning today with a picture of my mom and dad, Ann (Skrobul) and Edwin Brady. This photo was taken in 1955. I like this photo because it shows them relaxing, rather than in a formal pose.
For a more formal couple's photo, I've included a picture of me and my husband, Patrick Blake, from our wedding.
In honor of her birthday, here is a photo of my mom, Ann (Skrobul) Brady.
My mom liked having a December birthday. And she loved Christmas--the decorations, the music, baking cookies and visiting with relatives. She loved plants, so for many years I bought her a pointsetta plant for her birthday.
In honor of Labor Day weekend, the traditional end-of-summer-holiday-weekend, here is a photo of my mom, Ann Skrobul, with some friends at a beach in Chicago. This picture was probably taken in the 1940s.
From left to right: Claire, Ann Skrobul, Stella Gordon, and Alvina.
I am a genealogist with over 30 years experience. I have been researching my own family history since 1974, and I did client research for several years. I hope to have more time for research and blogging in 2015 than I have had in the last few years.
