Randy Seaver at Genea-musings suggested for last night's Saturday Night Genealogy Fun to share photographs of ancestors with facial hair.
(All photographs below can be clicked on to view larger.)
|I'll start off with my own photograph. I'm not my own ancestor, but facial hair isn't a relic of the past in my family. I'm wearing a hat that was bought for our 20 month-old twins, so it's a little small.|
|My grandfather, Melvin Newmark (1912-1992) was well-known for his well-groomed mustache. This photograph was taken in 1971.|
|My great grandfather, Samuel Deutsch (1861-1938) I believe this photograph was taken in Hungary prior to immigration in 1914.|
My great grandfather, Melvin Van Every (1863-1929). This photograph was taken in 1900.
|My great great grandfather, Moshe Leyb Cruvant (1857-1911). This photograph was likely taken within the last few years of his life.|
|My great great grandfather, Morris Blatt (1862-1926). I am unsure when the photograph was taken. Perhaps at one of his children's weddings, which would place it in 1912, or early 1920s.|
|An unknown Lichtmann or Deutsch relative, likely taken in Hungary.|
