Posin’ with my Ancestors

Ancestral Portrait Photo

This is a sketch of the oldest photograph of my family, which I feel lucky to have. The youngest person in there is my great-grandmother, the woman in the white collar seated in the middle of the front row. The photo was taken right before she left Russia for America. Her mother is seated to the right, and her grandmother to the right of her. I don’t know a thing about the rest of the people in the photo, so I’d like to think they would enjoy my irreverent posing.
