Adriana's Birthday 19 Feb 1904


Today was my maternal grand aunt Adriana’s birthday. She was much more than a grand aunt, I can say she was my grandmother.

Adriana’s sister, Leonor, my real grandmother died very young when my mother was only 5 years old. Adriana took care of my mother as her own daughter. We had a very special connection since I was a child. I was 17 years old when she died in 1976 and until today I remember how sweet and caring she was.


Adriana was the youngest daughter of Thereza Lopes and Francisco Machado Drummond. On this photo she appears with my mother, Maria Thereza.  I believe she was about 6 years old. The photo has no date but I can say it's around 1934, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

  1. Gosto muito desta foto da Vovó Sinha, mas não sabia que era a Mamãe que estava com ela. Também não lembrava que ela fazia aniversário em fevereiro.
    Estou acompanhando o blog e estou adorando os posts, mas tenho uma pequena dificuldade, pois está em inglês. Consigo entender muita coisa, mas em outras eu fico perdida.
    Parabéns pelo trabalho de pesquisa!!! Beijos,
