One Picture times Two

Have you ever watched that TV programme, 'Who Do You Think You Are?'  Celebrities are invited to helped to trace their family  ancestry with amazing results.

My mum died in 1948 when I was 4. I had hardly any pictures and knew very little about her family. My daughter signed up for that programme which traces ancestry. Imagine how I felt when I saw an identical picture of the two ladies with the dog posted on someone else's 'tree'. One intrepid email later (from me) and now 60+ years on I find I have a second cousin with a gorgeous family living out in New Zealand, I never even knew existed. Wow!
