So…. funny story. You know how my name on here is Admin-Fritz?
Turns out ‘Fritz’ was my great grandfather’s name. I don’t even mean nickname, or that it was short for Frederick, it was Fritz.
I went rifling though some of the jewelry I’ve had for many years, and came across pieces his wife gave me when I was a little little girl. It was sometime in between his death and hers, around nine months, and she gave me 2 pairs of earrings and a necklace. The earrings were made by him ( @fireflymorgan, remember those Apache tear earrings I gave you back in high school? The ones for non-pierced ears? He made those), and the necklace belonged to their daughter. I still have them.
Later I was given another pair of pearl earrings that belonged to my grandmother (their daughter) which go quite well with the necklace. They were passed to my elder sister who passed them to me.
So random family history that makes me laugh. I never got a chance to know these people too well unfortunately, to the point that I never really knew their names.
My sister has so much family history to tell me when shes procrastinating school work.
