52 Photos Week 2: Generations

+11 votes

It's week 2 of the 52 Photos Challenge!

To participate, follow the tag 52_photos. Every week we'll post a prompt in G2G like this one with a theme. There will be a link to a free-space profile for collecting the photos together (like this one). You should upload or add your photo to that page. See 52 Photos for help on this.

Themes will be broad and open-ended so that you can interpret it in a way that is meaningful to you.

If you use a social network (Facebook, Instagram, etc.) please share the photo there as well, using #52photos and #wikitree. This can be a great way to involve more family members. If you use a blog, include a link to your blog post in your answer below so we can all read it.

For fun, there will be three badges available:

  • 13 in 13 (posting 13 photos for 13 weeks consecutively)
  • 26 in 26 (posting 26 consecutively)
  • 52 in 52 (posting all 52 consecutively)

The first theme for 52 photos is: GENERATIONS.

Remember, to participate you'll need to add your photo to the free-space page linked below, i.e. add Space:52_Photos_Week_2_Generations on the photo edit page.  You can share them in this G2G post as well but they need to be on the free-space page to be counted. See 52 Photos for more information.

Wonderful Idea- as a child I remember my great grandmother, Lula Lang Hughes was kept quite busy sitting for "5 generation pictures" - God bless her!

Here is the 3 Sapp Generations taken at Christmas time.

I have four different sets of generation picture that I chose. Here the are:


This 3 Sapp Generations that is my uncle at the end and his son and grandson.

The next one is 3 Carroll Leonard generation. Carroll who is the father, then his youngest child, then the youngest child's son.


The next is Williams 3 generations which is my great aunt, her daughter, and granddaughter.


Then the next and last is 3 Shell generation. My aunt and my mom only sister alive, then her 2 daughters, then her grandchildren.


So sorry for so many it was very hard to choose from.

This is my first week, and I plan to keep doing it!  This photo shows my grandfather, Charlie Johnston, with his 9-month-old great-granddaughter on July 4th.  She is pretending to read the newspaper just like Grandpa.

Here's a fun picture of a Benedict Family Gathering from 1917. I think there are at least 3 generations and four species of mammals.

So who would have thunk that the picture I posted last week would be applicable to Week 2.  I have other generational pics on my side that I will share, but this is a solid 5 generations of my Hubby's line

This is Jesse Owen, standing on the far left, and all the descendants that could be gathered together for a photo in the mountains of North Carolina. I'm guessing this was taken in the 1880s.
