Off Topic For Once



I finally got round to scanning some old pictures..top is my gran and her brother, second is my gran as Little Red Riding Hood (both taken around 1922) Last is my great grandad with his first motor van..not sure when it was taken but they moved to Islip sometime in the 20's so it must have been before that :-)

Awesome - my cousin's wife did a family history for my parents, who are very distant cousins. I have someone called 'Long John' in my ancestry, which is quite funny for someone 5'3"!

Your Gran was a beautiful little girl! Thanks for sharing these Eliza.

What lovely things to have. If they stop doing the census, it will be so much more difficult for future generations to do the research we can do.

What treasures! My own kids love looking at the old photos of their grand/great-grand parents, it seems to give us a sense of self.
