How do I make this photo the thumbnail photo on Rachel Vidler's profile. It already is on Henry's?

I wanted to share this family photo of Rachel Vidler and with the community. Location: Newtown, New South Wales, Australia. Date: November 25, 1903. This is a photo of my mother's (Florence Maud (Vidler-527) Hathaway) parents taken on their wedding day. A beautiful photo of a gorgeous looking couple. (I'm biased, I know!!)

Hi Eileen,

Go to Rachel's profile and make a note of her ID# (Duffell-2).

Go to the Image page.  Near the bottom of the page on the left-hand side is a space where you can add Rachel's ID# to the image.  There are other options too.  Click to save.

That should do it :)
Hi Keith, Took a while but that worked brilliantly. I appreciate your advice and time.

Thankyou so much .
Lovely couple often wonder how there life was

Thank you for sharing
Thanks for you comment, Susan. They were a lovely couple. I often wonder too, but, for their time, I think their life was fairly comfortable, unlike previous generations. They owned their own home on a large block. Grandfather had a brick kiln business at the bottom of the yard. Their children all lived to adulthood, married and had children, all except one of whom are still living, my brother being the youngest at 63. The biggest difficulty was access to good medicine Grandma died when Mum was 9, and I often wonder if she had lived 50 years later would she have survived the 'heart pneumonia' (?) she is said to have died from. I'm sure that so many babies and children would not have died if there was available the know how and medicine available even from the 1950's. Thanks again, Eileen
Thank you very much for sharing the story. It was very interesting to learn about there live.

Did this Henry James vidler possibly own a bar in England called the 3 horse shoes? I believed he owned it in 1930 to 1944 before it was bombed in world war 2. I'm trying to track down and learn  family history that my grandma told me about! Thanks!

Hi Andrew, No, not this Henry James Vidler. He may be related though. This Henry James Vidler was my maternal grandfather was born 6 Oct 1874 in New South Wales, Australia. His Grandfather William migrated to Australia in 1838 with his family. William and previous generations were from Battle, Essex, England and surrounds.  If you check the profile of Henry James Vidler  ( ) and follow back, you may find a lead to your own branch. My family line goes back to early 1500's. Feel free to go to my profile  and send me a private message.
