|Wedding of Charles McCafferty and Evelyn Ryan|
I am fortunate, at my age, to still have two siblings of my mother who are still with us -- Evelyn and Jim. Family historians know how fortunate they are to be be able to have a "fact checker" who can help ascertain whether or not a story is fact or fiction. My Aunt Evelyn does that for me.
As mentioned in earlier posts, my mother and her two sisters all got married between January and June of 1948. They were part of the group of post World War II brides and veteran husbands who were responsible for the "Baby Boom." I am part of that generation.
My brother located a picture album filled with 8 x 10 pictures of the wedding of all three girls. Some were completely new to me. I've decided to put some of them into collages and make them part of the family history record recorded in this blog. Evelyn and Charlie will celebrate their 64th Wedding Anniversary in April. They are the parents of four children, 21 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
