Do you know your great grandparents, or even your great greats? Or were they already gone when you came along..

Just wondering because I never got the chance to meet any of my great grandparents bc they had all passed by the time I was born. :(

  • I knew my great-grandmother on my maternal side (my maternal grandmother's mother). She died when I was 15. But all my other great grandparents passed before I was born.

  • I never met mine either. I also never met either of my grandfathers. They were both gone before I was born.

  • My greats on my mom's side were all gone by the time I came along, but I did know my dad's, mom's dad - my paternal, maternal great grandpa. I did/do know some great aunts and uncles and a great, great aunt and uncle - sibs, not a couple. But they were really old and a little bit crazy.

  • I met two of my great grand fathers. One died when I was 3 and the other died when I was 9. We have a picture of our oldest with his Great Great Grandma, Great Grandma, Grandma and Daddy. All three of our boys LOVE their Great Granny Harriett and Great Grandpa Jack.

  • I knew my grandmother's mother and father, before they passed. My grandfather's father I don't think I ever knew - I don't remember him... But I remember his mother, although, sad to say, I don't know whether she's still living or not - they had a falling out a few years ago....
