  1. All those children, no smiles and the poor little girls don't look comfortable in those shoes/boots. But still, it is a slice of our heritage, and thanks for sharing this photo.

  2. What a fabulous photo! That poor mother must have had a lot of work to do, with so many little ones!

  3. well. this photograph is really enough to make you stop and think. I hope when they weren't sitting for a photograph they were more cheerful. I know sometimes kids can look like it's the end of the world when you're trying to get a good group photo, hope that was the case here.

  4. The parents look so young to have so many children! At first I thought the little ones in front might be boys, then read the names. Their hair is probably short due to some illness.

    I've given you the Ancestor Approved Award. I think you do a nice job of highlighting your ancestors. You can learn more about it and get the image at this post on my blog:

    Congratulations. I hope you like awards!
