    I love this family shot of my Gt grandmother, my grandfather as a boy, my gt gt grandmother and my gt grandfather and some other people who i haven't identified. My gt grandmother seems to have been as miserable looking in pics as I am. I wonder if she was an aspie :-p

    another one of my gt grandmother when she was working as a servant. I don't know much about the family she worked for but they were pretty well off, I understand.

    I don't have any photos of my ancestors. Shame, as it'd be interesting to see what they looked like. :)

    He got injured in the war

    His son Jack (my great-uncle), in 1945 on service Burma. My great-grandad pictured above got a telegram on VE day, when everyone else was celebrating, to say he'd died of fever.

    I love these photos even though I (obviously) don't know anything about the people or their families.

    This is one of my favorites from my collection; a distant aunt so not a true ancestor, but who can resist a dog in a fez? Rose Marie Barrett.jpg

    A copy of Votes for Women which judging by the font perhaps dates from the war after the Pethick-Lawrences were expelled from the Women's Social & Political Union and took the paper with them. I've tried identifying the front page from those online but can't seem to find it. The woman on the left is my great-grandfather's brother's wife.
