The Internet enables us to take genealogical research to a new level. One aspect of this is to search for actual images of our ancestors. Portraits come in many forms, from head and shoulder miniatures to full-length portraits, in watercolour, oils or silhouette. It is easy to overlook the fact that all the ladies, gentlemen and children in those pictures actually existed. They lived and breathed just as we do, and many will have descendants now living.

As I keep a digital image of every portrait that passes through my hands, I thought I could perhaps help those searching for an ancestral portrait by making these images available. Needles and haystacks come to mind, but having had the occasional satisfaction of restoring a portrait to a descendant of the sitter, I realise that this can happen.

The following is a list of the people whose portraits are preserved in our archives. I hope they may enable some researchers to see a likeness of an ancestor (and sometimes additional family details may then come to light). in recognition of my time and effort, there is a small charge for supplying digital copies of £10 +VAT per image, payable in advance. Payment can be made by debit/credit card or by personal cheque or bank transfer. Please note that all images are copyrighted and supplied purely for personal research and information.
