Fearless Females: Meeting up

Lisa A Alzo of The Accidental Genealogist started the Fearless Females prompts for Women’s History Month. Throughout March, each day will feature a different female ancestor. Today’s prompt is: How did they meet? You’ve documented marriages, now, go back a bit. Do you know the story of how your parents met? Your grandparents? 

My parents met at a local dance. My mom was there with her cousin, “Aunt Denise”. I forget who Daddy went with that day. She introduced them. They hit it off. 

I have no clue how mom’s parents met. Daddy’s parents (that's them in the photo circa 1943) actually met when they were in grade school. Baba was a year older and could speak a little English so she helped Gigi learn English.
