NPR had a story on this connections to the past. i had a bit of this seeing a black + white picture of my grandfather's parents and 8 children from the 20's. i knew 2 people in that photo. i spent time with my grandpa's 2 living uncles. my grandpa had uncle george til his 70's. lord knows the generational shit the duggers will encounter.
