I have a great many interests. Among them is writing poetry, taking photo's, the practice of T M and following a druid like path. What I am not nor have I ever been is subservient or fanatical. In the true sense of the term I am a free thinking person.

Part of my ANCESTRAL TREE
We all look at each other and I am sure that when doing so we try to imagine what our fore - fathers and mothers must have looked like.
Can we detect our own likeness in their faces?
Are there traits that we have inherited?
Here is one strand of my own ancestry that I recently discovered.
My Great Grandparents Jabez Finche and Elizabeth nee DORAN
who produced seven sons, each at approximately three yearly intervals.
Great Grandfather Jabez Finche (born 1853) with four of his seven sons.
So L to R Arthur b1878, William my Grandfather b1881, Ernest b1883
and John Henry the eldest son b1875.
As to where the other three sons were we shall need a crystal ball,
however, their names were Frederick b1886, Robert b1889 and Samuel b1892
My Grandparents Emily (nee Byford) and William Finch
and the photo was taken in 1928.
As far as I know all of the photographs were taken in the English Midlands.
If anyone recognises their relations in the above photo's or has any information please leave a comment marked PERSONAL if you do not want your name or the information to be published. Thank you.
