Old old old family pictures

I was formatting my grandfather's autobiography for use on the Kindle when I came across a cache of image files, scans he'd made of old family photos.

My Great-Great-Great-Great-Uncle Zachariah Lewis.

My Great-Great-Great-Grandfather Malachi Lewis (seated near the center) and his family.  My Great-Great-Grandfather John Douglas Lewis is standing in the back row, far left, with his wife (and my Great-Great-Grandmother) Lillie seating in front of him.

My Great-Great-Grandfather, John Douglas Lewis.

You're so fortunate your family has preserved such ancient images. Make sure you pass them on to other family members who will pass them on in turn. (I just found a 17-year-old grandnephew I didn't even know I had; he will be the recipient of my father's family's old photos when the time comes.)

Incidentally, I finally did my tax comps the other day, and you traded 10x the $-amount of securities I did in 2007. I'm small potatoes, for sure! ^^
