My Great Grandmoter "Pombinha"

This is one of my maternal great-grandmothers, she was nicknamed "Pombinha" (Little Dove):
I never got to meet any of my great-grandparents, but thankfully all four of my grandparents, so I was thrilled when one of my mom's cousins posted this photo to facebook today. This great-grandma and her husband are probably my only two great-grandparents born in Brazil, the other six were all born in Europe (France, Austria and Germany). She is the mother of my dear Grandfather José (I will need to edit that post, some photos are gone!), my mom's dad and I have a feeling she was a very loving woman.

And I'm creating a new label for the blog "Family History" -- I will have to add this label to lots of old posts!
