    I just checked myself. Out of the ancestors where I’ve no photo, I actually do have for 15 of them other kinds of pics, namely for

    - 1 ancestor a silhuette
    - 3 ancestors a miniature (painting)
    - 8 ancestors a painting
    - 3 ancestors an engraving

    Below one example for each kind in the above mentioned order (precautionary: none of these is a noble):

    He's not an ancestor but he was the brother of my 3x great grandfather:

    Edit: Just to provide more information. He was a priest born in 1813 and died in 1880.

    Here are two of my favourites from before the age of photography. The first is a Scottish ancestor who met an untimely end at the Battle of Culloden in 1746. More Scots fought against the Jacobites than for them in 1745-46, and this print from 1747 shows a kilted highlander dealing my ancestor his mortal wound. The print has been in my family’s hands since it was published; there’s another copy in the National Library of Scotland, but theirs lacks the ballad you can see in my image.

    My second ancestor was born in 1674 and will have overlapped with the first, although he was from the other end of this island, in Devon. Here's his portrait from this wiki page about him.

    Devonshirecharac00bariuoft_0025_-_Hugh_Stafford_copy_512x694.jpg

    He wrote a highly entertaining “dissertation on cyder making”, which reveals his deep love of local history and traditions as well as of good, traditional cider (an alcoholic drink made from apples, if you don’t know it). As a fellow West Country man and a lover of our local strong, dry and cloudy “scrumpy”, I particularly relish my ancestor’s amusing views on scrumpy’s antithesis, sweet cider: “It may be acceptable to a female, or a Londoner, it is ever offensive to a bold and generous West Saxon.”

    EDIT: Added second portrait instead of just a link

    When an original painting was in the posession of others - which may even often be the case - I try to get a One-to-one copy of that (in size and technique) made by an artist. So this is what I'd suggest if you are much into that topic. I had such copies done in regard to 8 ancestors.

    I guess those who have don't post and the ones eager to post don't have. That's why here's no traffic.

    Yeah, where's the avalanche? Most attention is attracted if friends post something and my few friends are not into genealogy. So the thread is likely only noted by genealogists if people with genealogist friends do post (whatever).

    Yeah you got it lol. I'm not posting any but we have have dozens of old portrets in the family, I even have one in my room. Then there are ancestors who are depicted in portrets even older than that but these are not in possession of immediate family. Busts and statues as well.

    Due to partial ancestry from the 17th and 18th century elite, there are many portraits of ancestors
    some interesting ones (not in my possession):
    - one of my ancestors with a black servant
    - a bedroom painting of an ancestral couple

    I do have prints of some of them. We also have a 50 year marriage jubilee medal with the couple engraved (18th century). This was not inherited by us, but bought when we came across it, just felt like a must-have as a descendant.

    I have photos of miniatures of my English merchant 5th g-grandparents. My cousin has the actual. I would love to find more such things.
