Yeah I often wonder about them. I would love to meet them. Maybe they could tell me about life back then and what they faced etc. It would be interesting to learn.

All the time.
I would love to have at least seen a photo of them.

Both grandparents (on my Mom's side) died during WWII, and there are no existing pictures of them. I'm not even sure if my Mom knew them.

On my Dad's side, I knew my great-gram.
But man, is it difficult to do geneology when grandparents were born in another country!

Yes, I used to look at pictures of them and think that.

It would be cool to know them, and understand how times were different.

I'd love to know what their life was like back then and what hardships they were faced with. It would also be cool to learn from them.

Oh, definitely. How could you not be at least curious--I know I am, mainly because I know absolutely nothing about my great-grandparents. Or any members of my family farther back than my great-grandparents.

I have a really old photo with my father, my grandfather, my great-grandfather and my great-great grandfather in next to each other, they all had kids really young. It's cool.

Yes, and my great-grandparents, and my grandparents on my dad's side.

My great-aunt on my Mom's side apparently did a really intensive family history, but my grandmother left it in a leaky garage and it was ruined.
I know a little about my great-grandparents, but beyond that, I think it's all lost to history. I believe they're the ones who emmigrated here, though, on both sides.

Not at all.
