Family history – small stone 5

I have recently been given this wonderful old book of the Jackson family genealogy. My great grandparents Thomas Jackson Greeves, and Gilbertina Newsom Jackson  were both direct descendants of the Isaac and Ann Jackson of this book. (As am I of course!)img_1082

Painting it this morning has made me appreciate the painstaking recording of family stories, together with the guiding principles and motivations of those who have gone before. Don’t let them be forgotten.

PS paper isn’t really blue…
