Mother’s Day 2013


Today is Mothering Sunday here in the UK, so what better way to mark it than to share a gallery of photos of my female ancestors.

The photographs show both my paternal and maternal direct-line of mothers, reaching from my mother to my Great Great Great Grandmother (Ann Bowers) on my maternal line, and from my father’s mother to my Great Great Great Great Grandmother (Avis Tall) on my paternal line.

Click on any of the photos below to see a larger version, and to view them as a slideshow.

Happy Mother’s Day!

    What a treasure to have all of those photos, and the gallery is a lovely way of remembering them.

  2. Thank you Anne. This is the first time i’ve put these photos in one place and a) realising that i’ve been so lucky to have photos of 18 different ancestral mothers, and b) seeing them all alongside each other and whether there’s any traits running through them.
