I'm blessed to have so many pictures. Particularly those on my father's side that go back so far thanks to the efforts of my cousin, Laura, who has been researching the family genealogy.

How far back can you trace your roots? Do you have any pictures of your ancestors?


  1. I have some pictures of my ancestors, but not as many or as far back as you. :-)

  2. Loved all your pictures. It's amazing you have so many. And Happy Birthday to your mom!

  3. That is awesome you have so many pictures. Happy birthday to your mom.

  4. That's a wonderful tribute to a long line of super women leading up to and included in your life.

  5. What a great post! Amazing pictures, and I love the one of your mom. :) ~ Jess

  6. Super post, to see the family line and resemblances!
    I have photos that go back some distance and Fortunately, my mom wrote who they were.

  7. This is awesome! I had pictures of my two grandmothers and my father's grandmothers, but they vanished during one of my many moves in the US. I wish I still had those pics. It's wonderful to know your ancestors. It gives you a better idea of "who" you are if you know who they were.
