When I first started out as a beginning genealogist twenty years ago, I had never seen a photo of my great-grandfather, John Costello. I didn’t know if one existed.
Slowly over the years, I have had a small, but very precious, handful of photos make their way to me. Each one is so monumental! Especially because Grandpa Costello is my most recent brick wall ancestor.
These two photos are just as precious. They include Grandpa Costello with his son Daniel Ramon Costello and Uncle Dan’s young son enjoying some time out in the snow with Uncle Dan’s horse. At least, that’s what I think I am looking at here. This is the back of the first photo.
The handwriting belongs to Uncle Dan’s wife, Aunt Barbara. I am so grateful to Aunt Barbara for sharing so much with me. She is a wonderful person who is so gracious and generous with her time and memories.
Happy Thursday, I hope you make contact with a wonderfully gracious and generous family member like my Aunt Barbara who will share some family treasures and memories with you. xoxo

The cap is a good identifier for your John Costillo. 🙂
Oh, it is? What do you mean?!
You’ve already shared one or two of him with the cap. I associate him with the cap. 🙂
Ohhhhh, that makes more sense. I was wondering if the cap was very Spanish in nature or something that I was missing. 😉 I know you live MUCH closer to Spain than I do.
It doesn’t look Spanish to me. I think of bus drivers, policemen, or chauffeur when I see similar caps.
That’s what I thought too, but I wondered if you were going to introduce me to something new. Haha! 🙂
