Happy Mother's Day

We wouldn't be who we are today without the loving mothers in our lives - past and present.

Here are the eight female ancestors (besides my mother) for whom I currently have photographs.

They are all such lovely ladies. It's wonderful that you have photographs of so many of your grandmothers.
