Shared Photo: 3 generations

+10 votes

I wanted to share this family photo of John Merrill with the community. Location: Great Gransden, Huntingdonshire, England. Date: 21 Apr 1903. My grandfather is the young lad, with his mother and his grandfather born 1820. My 7 year old grandson was doing a genealogy project at school and couldn't believe he'd got a picture of his gggg grandfather to show the class! Taken at the marriage of my grandfather's elder sister Kate

David, this is a great photo. What a treasure! Not too many pics out there of folks born so early as your gg-grandfather. Thanks for sharing it with us!

Thank you for searching for photos--they truly are treasures when found, and they so greatly enrich our ancestors' profiles.  Pictures really are worth a thousand words!
Thank you for your comment Cynthia, they sure are treasures as you say, and even if it seems like a lifetime tracking them down, when found they bring such joy and a sense of achievement.
