In Memorium

MIL had said to me that she had a brother who died soon after birth and that her parents were devastated. When I started doing FH, every one I asked (after her death) said I had got it wrong and that there were only the 4 girls from his first wife. This picture, sent by my American cousin, shows Baby Boy Browning 1917, laid out for burial … morbid I know but he was much longed for, he is part of our FH and the parents must have wanted to remember him and others to see the photo.



I hope this does not upset anyone.

Thank You for looking at this blog

Beautifully done Angie. It's a sad fact, we have similar photos in our own family, a tragedy belonging to my own generation. They are intensely important pictures. Wasn't he beautiful.

That's a beautiful page. Infant death was so common back then. I am tracing my own family tree and it's sad to see so many child deaths.

This is so beautifully done Angie - he looks like he has just gone to sleep. The picture must have been heartbreaking and yet reassuring to own at the same time.
