New Photo

Please please dont give up
I have been researching my family tree for over twelve years, long before the internet sites. My parternal grandfather eluded me as I had only one photo of my gran, which was very small. Both my gran and grandad were victorian, he was born 1878 and Nan 1881. Nan was in her late 70s when i was born as my father was born after the 1st world in 1920.
I recently held a Ancestral BBQ and invited people who were related whom I had never met, and no one had ever met or knew each other. We were the grandchildren and grt grandchildren of my grandfather and his six other siblings.
Many photos were exchanged and I got talking to a cousin about our grandfather. Imagine my excitement when she informed me she had a photo of my grandfather in his uniform. True to her word she sent me a copy its made all my research worth while.



Keep going
