Family Photographs - Post 33: Wedding Announcement

I'm posting old family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be wordless posts like others do - I simply am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here is one of the most precious (to me) images from my Seaver-Richmond family collection:

This is the wedding announcement of my grandparents, Alma Bessie Richmond to Fred Walton Seaver on Thursday, 21 June 1900 in Leominster, Massachusetts.

From this union came seven children, 11 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren, 30 great-great-grandchildren and 4 3rd-great-grandchildren (and more undoubtedly in the future).

I received this wedding announcement from my second cousin, Laura, who found me on the Internet. Her great-grandmother, Grace (Richmond) Shaw, was a sister of Alma Bessie (Richmond) Seaver.
