That One Family Photo. Family History shared.

Generally every family history researcher has at least “one” very special photograph of a specific ancestor. It could be a great uncle, a second cousin, or your youngest brother. It is a photo by itself that speaks volumes about the person’s life and character to anyone who sees it. It can make a person say ‘Wow!

What a super gift, if you selected that one or maybe even two or three such awesome photos and had them duplicated. Send a copy in this year’s Christmas cards or placed in a frame, wrapped as a gift to other relatives.

If you have a family web site or Facebook page, make sure to post that image. Include a little information about the person and state how they are related to you.

Even people generally not interested in genealogy will appreciate such an amazing photo.

Below are a few examples. Post your own here to share.
