been a while since I dug this one up...its all the pics we have of my male line, including an infant great nephew

...only the gravestone for my GGGpa Patrick Whealen, the oldest y line ancestor I know of, and the one that brought us to Canada in 1831-no pics of him though

Mike

PS-I tried to pick pictures that were of us in our late teens or early 20's-this is to match the oldest photo's we had of the y line ancestors as most were that age when taken-I had lots of options for recent generations, but very very few of the older ones

Apparently, judging from the square and compass on his tombstone, my 3rd great grandfather was a Freemason. My second great grandfather, James Holmes Stevens, was a captain in the Confederate Army during the American Civil War.

Note: I added a photo of my dad (I tried to put it in the post originally but was having problems with Image Shack).

I come from a family with a long history of being affiliated with the military, until my father broke the tradition. Our ancestral town, which originated as a Crusader fortress on a promontory in the Lebanon mountains that extend south into Galilee, was always a military and administrative (and imperial postal) center, starting from the Crusades, through the Mamluk dynasty, and to the end of the Ottoman empire. My ancestors remained in the military throughout the British Mandate (serving in the British army) also. The Y-DNA lines are: R1a-F1345 and J2b1.

With that said, most all the men of the older generations in my extended family were very conservative, traditionalist, stern and laconic types. Frivolity, superfluousness and being casual were unacceptable (in public). Their households ran like clockwork (thanks to my female ancestors), with meals being served at the same times each day, and every thing had its place in the house. Formality in dress and manners, even between relatives, was commonplace. The new generation is not like this at all... the old order has disappeared.

Great pics guys! Of course on my direct paternal line I don't have any that are far back. Kind of like how this is the line that gives me the most trouble in my research. The few pictures that I have of my paternal grandfather, are not close up of him, and he is not facing the camera.

My great great grandfather born in Southern Italy, 1858. My mother's father's grandfather. I don't know his haplogroup, but I also have a few male cousins in his direct line that might be willing to test. Will be interesting to see if this line is an E, I, or a G. Just me guessing of course!

Freemasons?



Apparently, judging from the square and compass on his tombstone, my 3rd great grandfather was a Freemason.

I know I'm over a year late on this, but the ubiquitous presence of the Freemasons in New Orleans is a weird/interesting thing to me. It has a significant presence throughout the entire South, so some speculate that it was carried over from the neighboring Protestant states/areas, and helped facilitated trade, and good relations between the Catholics, and Protestants in New Orleans. However, there's evidence that it was brought over from France, and established in Louisiana before it was even a part of the United States. Strange stuff.

Some valuable photos, heirlooms and keepsakes have been lost within my family over the past several decades, due to geopolitical instability in Syria and Israel-Palestine. However every now and then, some distant relative or friend will surprise us with something.

A relative sent us this photo (ca. 1940's) of my grandmother's brother, and his oldest son. The photo was taken in either Zarqa, Jordan or Safed (Zefat), Israel. Haplogroup J2b1.

I'm R1b L21 L1335 (and I plan to test deeper).

My paternal roots go back to the Logiealmond district in Perthshire, Scotland. My immigrant ancestor and his wife left Scotland and came to America in the summer of 1775 and settled near Albany, NY. The oldest photo I have of my direct paternal line is this gentleman, the grandson of the immigrant.

This man was born in 1806 and died in 1876--my guess is this photo was taken within a year or two of his death.

My paternal great grandfather. Born in Deptford, London, in 1884. His father in turn, had moved to London, from a family of agricultural labourers in South Oxfordshire, up river. He served in the Royal Field Artillery. Later working as a clerk for the Post Office. He is pictured here with his life-partner, Mabel, at Sheerness, Kent in 1933. He became estranged from our family.

Y Haplogroup L M20. M317, or L1b under the present ISOGG. Yes, for some reason he was carrying L. Very rare for North West Europe, and not M349.

I have just found out the pic of the brother of my great great great grandfather, on the paternal line. The oldest pic of a carrier of my yDNA haplogroup. He and his brother (my ancestor) had settled in the city of Petrópolis, where the Emperor D. Pedro II lived. The pic is from the XIX century! ;)

I envy you quite a lot! I only have photos of my paternal grandfather (avatar), his father was murdered in his late 20s/early 30s and like for most folk on rural areas a photo was something very rare. Oldest photo of my family I have is from 1920s, but from my paternal great great grandmother

I collect them since I was very young, like a hobby. I was very lucky with this one. ;) A cousin of mine met a descendant of the brother of my ancestor, by chance. Since they have the same surname, they talked to each other, and the descendant shared the pic.

My father's family in early 60's Lebanon. Our haplogroup is J2a2 (L581). The two kids standing behind are my father's cousins on his mother's side; they are R1b (L23).

I had a hard time finding this old thread, thought it was in the Lounge and was searching in vain. Anyway, lately I've filled a couple of gaps or improved on the available images, and one of my grandsons has gotten old enough to look like a man. So I'll paste in a group portrait of seven generations of my YDNA line.

Birth years of the illustrated guys are 1797, 1842, 1869, 1910, 1939 (me), 1972 and 2002. So, that's one from the 18th century, two from the 19th, three from the 20th, and one (so far) from the 21st. Except for my grandson, every one of us has had at least two sons who also had children. Average gap between the father-and-son pairs shown is 34 years and two months.

With the exception of the two oldest (aged almost 90, and 83, respectively) I have photos taken in their young adulthood, between the ages of 18 and 25. The run is from my paternal gr-gr-grandfather through my eldest grandson. I made them into an album, sequentially, and took a screen shot of all seven at once.

... a group portrait of seven generations of my YDNA line37378Handsome lads. I'm kind of wishing I could rock #1 and #2's style as I decay.
It's a bit of a superstitious hobbyhorse of mine, that men look like their fathers (and their father's father's fathers, etc.). This is right in line with that. Peas in a pod, from where I'm looking.

Two of these guys are R1a-YP445, the other one is probably R1b, being ancestrally in the male line from Leicestershire, England.37379
37380. 37381. The first one is my paternal grandfather, then me and my maternal grandfather.

I'm hesitant to share family photos for some reason. This is my paternal great grandfather in 1956 (b. 1897) with his son: https://imgur.com/a/RVfCvIf (R1b-Y160102).

This is my 2x great grandfather with his wife in 1917 (b. c1847): https://imgur.com/a/lb6IrVX (R1b-DF109)
