FamilyFamily HistoryHolidays Valentine’s Day: Send in your ancestors’ wedding photos to win! By Esther January 26, 2016 Share Share Copy Link “For this was on seynt Volantynys day, Whan euery bryd comyth there to chese his make.” — Geoffrey Chaucer [“For this was on St. Valentine’s Day, when every bird cometh there to choose his mate.”] Scholars believe that the poem Parlement of Foules (1382) by Geoffrey Chaucer is the first recorded association of romantic love with Valentine’s Day. So many families have a great love story at the start: Two people who fell in love and the romance that changed their lives forever. Growing up, we’ve all heard the love stories of our grandparents, great-grandparents or other ancestors, and perhaps we were lucky enough to see their photos as well. Leading up to Valentine’s Day, we’re asking you to share your ancestors’ most romantic wedding photos from decades gone by. Simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your photos by February 9, 2016, for your chance to win a romantic dinner for two! We look forward to seeing your photos and hearing about the great romances behind them.
