Where I Come From: Paternal Edition

I've always been fascinated by my family history. I'm less knowledgeable about dad's side than mom's, simply because they've all lived 8 hours away my whole life  - and guys seem to keep fewer mementos than ladies. Lucky for me, hanging around my parents' today, I found these gems in dad's computer. 

You gotta love authentically vintage photos.
Clockwise from top left:
1. the family before uncle ken was born (dad's in the middle in the front. yes, he was 1 of 7! this picture was the first i ever saw where i noticed the distinct resemblance between he and i) // 2. grandpa john //  3. dad's high school picture // 4. great grandma (grandma's mom, she looks a lot like my grandma did!) // 5. dad in college (at the first bar i ever snuck into) //  6. lithuanian great grandparents (grandpa's parents) //   7. grandma with 5 of my aunts and uncles
I'll be posting my fantastic vintage finds from Jessie's grandparents' old Brooklyn apartment tomorrow.
Keep and eye out for them!
