Ancestors Photographs and Sketches

I enjoy managing to obtain photographs of my ancestors but there are other ways to give that special touch to your records.

One of my favourite photographs is that of my grandfather who died on my 5th birthday back in 1964. I spent a number of years researching this side of my family and it gave me great pleasure too. 

I got to hear about a talented young artist from Co. Armagh who now lives here in Co. Cork. I asked him if he would be interested in sketching a picture of my grandfather as I wished to give this as a present to the family. I was delighted with the sketch and I certainly can recommend him. (see link below sketch) 

I could talk about this forever but it's best to just show you........the sketch is the 2nd image.

Feel free to e mail me if you wish to  obtain details of this fine artist.
