Woman Inherits Her Grandparents’ Passports From The 1900s And Shares Them With The World

Published 6 months ago

Many of us only know our great-grandparents from stories and the occasional surviving photo. One woman, however, got to know her great-grandparents a little closer.

A short while ago, Ohio woman Maggie Orr Hicks was passed down the passports of her great-grandparents. The passports date all the way back to the 1900s and are full of little pieces of history.

Maggie Orr Hicks was recently passed down the passports of her great-grandparents from the 1900s

The passports were passed down to Maggie by her mother, who has recently been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer, as a keepsake. The woman then posted photos of the passports to a Facebook group called Girls Love Travel asking for help translating them. And people did! See the vintage passports and the translations in the gallery below.




















Not only was the woman able to find out where and when her great-grandparents were born, she also found out a lot about their travels and was excited to share all of that information with her mother.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
