For Mother’s Day this year I decided to pay tribute to all the mothers in my Family Tree who contributed to making me who I am. Of course there are tens or hundreds of thousands of women in my direct line of ancestry, if you go back to the beginning of our species. My family tree goes back to the 1500’s in some places, to my 11x or 12x great grandparents. As I’ve said before, that’s about 20,000 grandparents in your entire family tree to that depth. Obviously there’s no way I can pay meaningful tribute to 10,000 women, so I decided to put together a collection of all the mothers, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers that I have photos of in my tree. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Happy Mother’s Day, my beloved ancestors!
