I’ve been so busy listening to webinars that this whole week slipped by and I just noticed that it is time for Saturday Night Genealogy Fun with Randy Seaver.
This week’s challenge is pretty easy:
1) How many ancestors do you have photographs of? What is your oldest ancestor photo (the year it was taken)?
Here are my direct line ancestors for whom I have photos:
2 Parents – George Michael Sabo and Doris Priscilla Adams
4 Grandparents – George Kucharik aka Sabo & Julia Scerbak, Vernon Tarbox Adams and Hazel Ethel Coleman
8 Great Grandparents – Stephen Kucharik & Maria Kacsenyak, Michael Scerbak & Anna Murcko, Charles Edwin Adams and Annie Maude Stuart, Hartwell Thomas Coleman and Anna Elisabeth Jensen
So far, so good, as I have photos of all my ancestors through my great grandparents.
However, now I lose half my tree, as my Slovak paternal branch had no opportunity to have photos taken in the villages. However, I’m also missing a few of my 2X great grandparents on my maternal side.
4 2X Great Grandparents – Calvin Segee Adams & Nellie Tarbox, William Coleman & Sarah Moriah Crouse
3 3X Great Grandparents – Daniel Adams, George Rogers Tarbox & Mary Elizabeth Scripture
2 4X Great Grandparents – Thomas Adams & Sarah Brawn
I feel very privileged to be the caretaker of so many family photos. My two oldest are of Thomas Adams (1783-1859) and his wife, Sarah Brawn (1786 to between 1851 and 1859).
Sarah Brawn & Thomas Adams
Their clothing dates these photos to about 1850.
Thanks, Randy, for this week’s challenge!
