I guess you are wondering about this long frame with several black and white photos. Well, for several years I have been very interested in genealogy. Especially the collection of photographs of ancestors.
Left to right! Ann (my great great grandmother) 1821-1879 Fifteen children (three sets of twins)
Julia (my great grandmother) 1860-1932 Nine children
Julia (grandmother) 1901-1994 Ten children
Lyda (mother) Five children 1921-1998 Five children
That's me....and I am still here! Two children

What a fantastic piece of history right there in a frame Janey, so interesting to not only see the different styles of hair and clothes over the years, but also the fact that families are so much smaller these days.ReplyDelete
You must be pleased to be at home again after the long, possibly tiring, journey.
We greatly like the way in which you have 'framed' your ancestors.
Love the framed history of the mothers in your family and also interesting to see how the numbers of chlldren diminished after your mother. Several sets of twins!! My goodness! With all of our time-saving luxuries, I doubt that many modern mothers would still be able to cope!!ReplyDelete
I can only imagine the hardships Ann saw and lived. I am not proud that her parents as well as she and my GG-Grandfather were one time slave owners. Thankfully, the Civil War ended all of that. I actually have a copy of a long letter she wrote in 1872(after the war) to one of her sons (away in college). Talking about hiring the Indians to help get the crops in.Delete
very cool lineage and framing! congrats on making it to your other home! :)ReplyDelete
I love this idea of a picture gallery of only the women ancesters ! too often they are forgotten, the name does not make it to the next generationReplyDelete
you grandmother Ann looked like queen Astrid of Belgium (she was Swedish by birth)
Thank you. I was able to trace Ann's father who is of English descent. But, Ann's mother was Isabella...and I can not find her maiden name anywhere. I thought Isabella could be a Spanish first name?Delete
That is nice you have pictures of so many ancestors and placed them in such a nice way in your home.ReplyDelete
