More Ancestral Photographs

I was amused in the interest of the two photographs I posted a while back. I had considered them quite ordinary. So I thought I would post some photographs of my ancestors that I really enjoy.

This first one is of my grandmother with my father.

Absolutely love old pics beth. I have some black and whites that I have displayed in my kitchen of my Great Grandfather, Grandparents on both sides, my mother when she was young and one of my father in his army uniform. I also have some others displayed in my bedroom. I have a great deal of old family pics as a result of doing my family research. I love to have pics to go along with the history.
