I was born in the 80’s. I recently realized that I’ve lived in 5 decades, two centuries and two millenniums.
My great grandmother was born in Mexico around 1891 and passed away in 2002 in the States. We didn’t have a birth certificate but 1891 was her infant baptism date on record from the church, yet she actually remembered the event.
My great something grandfather lived to 105. 1816 to 1921. I only learned that because some stranger posted a newspaper article on Facebook about a 104 year old man who was brought to a polling place by the police.
I asked my dad about it and it turns out he was my grandfather’s great grandfather.
When this woman was born, Marie Antoinette was still alive.
