In response to a question about my family tree quilt and photos.
I decided years ago to make a family tree quilt but never got around to it, so when I thought "now is the time" I looked for photos of my immediate family.
I found I had pictures of all FOUR grandparents, plus to my amazement SIX of my Great Grandparents, this led me to search for the missing two GG's an Aunt said she had a painting of one of them so I hot footed it over to take a photo of the painting, and to my surprise she had found a photo of the eighth GG.
I also have a photo of a painting of my GGGrandfather, but that's as far as I can go.
