It's nice you have so many photos of your family in the wonderful Victorian clothing they wore back then. So many times, it's hard to find old family photos. I have seen one of my great great grandmother's family. It is a photo of one of her sisters, and I look exactly like her except I have fuller lips! Anyway, if I can find that photo, I should post it.

Thanks everyone.  ;D  Theres about 9 more pics like thoses, the ones my great grandmother Mary (1905-1995) left mostly baby pics of my Grandpa. which isn't so bad, but am not going to scan them and post them all. If you want to know more of Nanny Campbell (which i called her - Great grandma) go to my web page, under "About me".

We would certainly like to see more pictures! Anyway, perhaps others if they have them, can post some old family photos. :)

I have some of my great grandma, who looked a little like a grand duchess when she was a kid. I'll post them when I get home.
