How exciting!! I remember the thrill I got when a cousin sent a photo of my great grandparents and my grandad sitting on his father's knee with the message "don't know if you've seen this". I cried 'cos I knew a photo like this must have existed but didn't know who would have it.

Well, I have the pictures now and omg they are fantastic. I have a pic of my grandad on a motorbike and a pic of Grandad with his father in law (The Great Grandfather whose burial whereabouts is a complete mystery) as well as other pictures too dating back to the early 1930's

Now I know what he really looked like and how he looks so much like his sisters (proved from pictures shared with me recently) and I believe his daughter (my nan)

I am so happy.

I am still waiting to see them but Mum will email them on. I have shared pictures Ihave received of her ancestors with her today too.

She wasnt interested before but things have changed a bit.

I may not know where great grandfather was buried but I will soon know what he looked like and I will be able to compare him to 2 of his sisters thanks to a new contact va GR.
