Think social media sites like Instagram and Twitter can’t really be used for family history in a meaningful way? Grandma Betty will change your mind!
Jeffersonville, Indiana’s Grandma Betty has become an Instagram sensation thanks in big part to her Grandson. Betty is fighting cancer, and her family wants to ensure her memory is preserved – so they turned to social media.
I love this social media merriment on so many levels!
- love of family
- family history
- battling cancer head on
- and the coming together of very different generations
