Look out for part 2 of this family story coming soon!
I am researching photos purchased for our Regimental archives! One of Alfred David John Spence-Colby. I Googled & it led me to your wonderful web site!
Some Old Photos from my collection, some with Christmas connections and others just because I love them!🎄😍
Sometimes when I’m researching I get a feeling that there is much more to a family than I have found, I expect others get this too, a sort of sixth sense. Oh I was right!!!!
It’s amazing how the story of this family who moved to Australia can be told mainly through the Newspaper Archives.
Huge thanks once again to all these wonderful followers and all the snippets of information that made up the solving of these puzzles
This Blog has a link to Wellington, Prince Albert and Queen Victoria, a Governor of the Tower of London and even a link to a famous Olympic Gold Medallist!
From the clues on the back I finally managed to find the right family where everyone fitted in
Do your Ancestors come from these areas? Have you old Victorian photos of your Ancestors that match with any of these people?
Golden Wedding photo I found at the Giant Fleamarket at the Bath and West Showground last Sunday, with writing on the back!
Most of you will, I’m sure, have heard of J.M.Barrie, James Matthew Barrie of Peter Pan fame, but how many of you have heard of his wife Mary Ansell.
In my last part about the family with connections to A La Ronde, I thought I would share the few photos unidentified so far with you.
So now I have identified the couple, the child on Mum Stella’s lap is indeed their first born Stella Joanna Matilda Parminter Tudor!
Who was Ellis Ogilvie? After another half hour reading all the reports for any clues I hit gold! I did a happy dance!!!
