Family photos

Typical unknown ancestor
Regular readers will know that I'm quite interested in my family history and have an ongoing quest to complete my family tree. Today I travelled down to my Mum (in advance of youngest god-daughter's christening tomorrow) and found that she had come back from a recent visit from my Gran with a couple of carrier-bags of photos. These ranged from quite recent (within my lifetime) to stern looking Victorians and Edwardians. Some of them we can work out who the people in the photos are, some will remain a mystery. Occasionally there is a note on the back - usually in illegible Victorian handwriting!
The great thing about digital photography - you can tag your subjects!
