Old photos

great grandmother

Thursday, 13 January 2011

I am the family historian in my family. I love doing genealogy and have one line of the ancestors back to a baptism in Bedfordshire, England in 1603. As well as finding information, I am often given lots of photos, often with nothing written on the back of them to identify who is in the photo.

One relative decided to clean out their attic, and lo and behold, there were portraits of my grandfather, great grandfather and great grandmother. Of course, the insects had also found them.

I have spent a lot of money having the portraits fixed and digitally recorded, but I thought I would put the original image on here today.

Do you have a family historian? Do you have lots of photos that don’t have any names on the back?
