Photographs and paintings of our ancestors

In the far past, we had paintings of family members - most usually these were reserved for the well off. The era of modern photography began with the daguerreotype, in 1839. Since the advent of photography, many (if not most) of our ancestors have been documented. The following are the individual paintings and photos of our grandmothers and grandfathers.
