family tree-oh!


photo i love of my great great grandfather (right), his ‘man friday’ (left), and an unaccounted for cousin of some sort (center). taken in glasgow, scotland many years ago. wondering what the story of this photo is, and which of the 3 i most resemble? 




“Why waste your time and money looking up your family tree? Just go into politics and your opponents will do it for you!” —Mark Twain


“The family. We were a strange little band of characters drudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another’s desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms … and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together.” —Erma Bombeck

  1. I love the photo! When I was a kid, my mom had these kind of photos all over our house. However, none of them were related to us….she just liked the pictures! 🙂


  2. This is an awesome posting Beth,
    and who do you best resemble? 🙂
    Not the unaccounted cousin that’s
    for sure, mind you it does look kind

  4. I’m arriving late to this party (your blog). So much to see and savor.
    When I see this I realize I have not yet addressed the bear in the room – well there are two of them – genealogy, and….Disney. Two topics I can talk about at the drop of a hat. Do you ever just have to stop and look up phrases like “drop of a hat” while you are talking/writing? 🙂 I never used to be like this.
    What a beautiful photo you have of your ancestor.
