Family photos.

What are the oldest and/or coolest family photos you own?



I've had a long-delayed project to put together an ancestor wall in my house. My wife and I would put photos of ourselves in the middle, and then we'd branch out to the left and right with direct ancestors.

The oldest photo I've obtained as part of this project is a fuzzy copy of one of my direct ancestors in a Civil War uniform. I've also got pictures of my grandmother's family before she was born, standing in front of their log cabin. (Of course, this was in the Ozarks, so the year is 1910.) My grandfather as a teenager had a hairstyle that is uncannily similar to modern teenager haircuts.

My wife has pictures of some of her ancestors before they immigrated to the U.S. from Norway, and she's also got a big photo of her grandfather in a World War I uniform.

I love old photos.

I have more old photos of ancient, unknown relatives than I do of relatives with whom I actively socialize.

I'm very intrigued by them. One in particular resembles me very strongly. He's from my father's side, so I'm pretty sure I'm not a bastard.

My Grandma put together a video tape of us cousins as kids from one of those old camera with no sound. But as far as pictures go, there is nothing all that special.

I've got photos going back 3 generations to my great grandparents circa 1900. Maybe even some that are older.

Funny you should mention this as my wife is sort of trying to start a business related to old family photos. She got into geneology recently and then started buying up old photos on ebay and at flea markets. She thinks she's gonna figure out who the people are and trace them to their descendants to sell the photos.

In reality, she's just buying old photos of people not related to us and storing them in our basement. Even is she ever did trace anyone down, she'd probably just end up giving them the photos. I love my wife, but she has no business sense whatsoever.

She should just say the photos are haunted and someone will pay a high price for them save herself a lot of work to.

So, your cousin has 3 chins. If you think that's hardcore, you really need to get out more.

Within the Goatcheese family they are referred to as jiz deflectors.

That's not hardcore. But look at his expression! Look at the flame! HARDCORE!

Maybe not by birthright............ You know speaking on the subject I was actually scouted by the IRS for a job, until they found out my parents were married.
