Grandma & Grandpa Marra:

Nunciatta - I love that name!  She had six sons; the last one born, so the family story goes, she didn't know she was carrying.  She went upstairs with indigestion and was surprised to find out her sixth son was being born!

Leonardo came from Italy to find work shortly before WWI.  He enlisted in the US Army, went to basic training and got on the ship to sail to Europe.  Part of the way over, Armistice was declared and the ship turned around.  He never saw active duty, but he got his naturalized citizenship which he treasured.

This image was the result of a large format camera photo of the original image.  The original was then cut into an oval for a frame.  Ouch! Don't ever cut your originals to fit a frame.  Today, it is much better to digitize and make a reprint which you can cut for a frame.
