Thinking about Ancestors Today

Thinking about Ancestors Today
I have been thinking about family and the ones who are gone. This is one of my favourite photos of my mother (on the right) and her sister. It was taken around 1918 in Guelph Ontario.

It would be great if I got it restored to get rid of the black photo holders so that will be my next step. Do you have a favourite photo of an ancestor that you keep tucked in a drawer? This one is going in my Shutterfly book about my family. I have quite a few from this time period and really need to get them organized and create copies.

Really cute photo Lorinne. Great one to preserve.

What an adorable photo of two adorable girls. I love their little hats and that you can see your aunt's pantaloons (is that what they are?) under her dress. I think your mom was born about the same time as mine (which was 1915).

How sweet! Some of my favorite family photos are also candid shots from the nineteen-teens.
