Why Post a family photograph Andrew? A short answer would be a lady in Miami USA enjoys me sharing old pictures of previous generations from my family, in addition I haven’t viewed these three for several years which seems a shame. 🙂 Incidentally below are links to three other blog Posts for those interested in genealogy and family history, hopefully you’ll take a peek and enjoy.
Anyways enough ‘waffle’ let’s return to the photo of Eddie and Aggies wedding 1912 shall we, a common theme to my previous blog was sharing my vintage family photos, here’s three links to earlier posts and quite interesting tales, well quite a few people were kind enough to ‘like’ which was nice.
I am a very fortunate man in that I can trace back my family tree many generations, in fact my Mother’s side back ten generations and I’m lucky to posses photographs of each of my Great Grandparents, in addition I have envelopes full photographs posted from a Great Grandfather who served in the Somme Region 1916 WW1 and a Great Grandfather serving in the Boer War South Africa.
I’m NOT showing off mind, neither bragging, I only tell you this because I realise I’m a very fortunate man because some adopted children may not even posses a picture of their own mother to call their own……… very upsetting to write because there’s a family story here.
Eddie and Aggies wedding! The assembled family seated in my Grandmother’s back yard belong to my mother’s side of the family, and very wealthy they were to, however their business and fortune were both lost in the Depression (bad news for me lol), anyways all very unfortunate. Oh yes I said my mother’s side, well the lady wearing a white blouse seated between her two cousins is my Great Grandmother Nellie and all looking very splendid in their straw hats and long skirts.
Perhaps one or two of you are interested in the Edwardin costume? (Downton Abbey and all that.)
