A WWII era photo of my grandfather. Captured in his hometown (Warsaw, Poland), by the Red Army at 19 years old as a P.O.W, he bravely went on to fight numerous campaigns until the end of the war for Europe. @savefamilyphotos #savefamilyphotos @fullertonphoto #wwII #grandfather #worldwartwo #pow #mia #veteran #army #poland #polish #greatestgeneration #blackandwhite #historical #heritage Thanks, andrea_somethingski http://ift.tt/1pN7S1z @savefamilyphotos

Monkey see, monkey do
I am here, they’re in a zoo
Not quite sure how old I am
But for sure, know how to ‘ham’
Thinking this is ‘59’
There abouts … suits me just fine. 
Where you at? I heard you ask
Indiana ! The smile’s no mask.

Today would have been my grandmothers 100th birthday! Happy Birthday, Nanny! I miss her still and have wished so many times that I could ask her for a recipe, or for her to retell me a story or just to get her perspective on something. (Happy Birthday, Nan,say hi to Poppa for me xoxo love you both!). #grandparents #savefamilyphotos #nanny #family #sheepsheadbay #birthday Thanks, kerryriege http://ift.tt/1nbLzBb @savefamilyphotos

My dta (grandfather on my mother’s side) circa 50’s in Northern Thailand. Pictured here with his nephew.

Such a bold specimen of man! Chief of his village, a devotee Buddhist,a kickboxing champion and father of 7. 
This man is just as much a rockstar today as he was 50 years ago. He still sports a fine suit, although his tastes are a little more unapologetically Thai.. Often opting for bright yellow or white, never without sunglasses. Gets up at the crack of dawn to to light incense and pray. Non-stop spars with my brother Muay Thai style. Doesn’t speak a word of English and I don’t speak Thai, but what still translates is that he has the wickedest sense of humour and warmest heart to boot.

My Aunt Nonnie. Rosalia Wanda Albina Kubkowski Bizek Rowinski. She raised my grandma and her siblings. She is the reason my grandma is who she is today!!

If I had one wish it would be to spend the day with my grandma on the day she had these portraits taken in 1945. I think sometimes we forget that our elders were young once, so I am thankful I have these to remind me. Luckily she is only a couple miles away, so I just might take a drive to ask her about the day these beautiful photos were taken. #savefamilyphotos #photobooth #familytree #genealogy Thanks, sarajpupa http://ift.tt/1nbeq8A @savefamilyphotos
