Photo Album: Unknown woman

It wasn’t just his own or contemporary photographs that survived in the collection of my 2x great-uncle Percy Ebenezer Trower, but older family photographs. This is one such carte de visite that survived, probably dating to a couple of generations before Percy’s. 97 more words

Family History

Distracted by Percy the Prawn

Last night I took the plunge and started transcribing the diary of my 2x great-uncle Percy Ebenezer Trower.

I have been in this position before and have never managed to progress beyond the first couple of pages , hopefully this time I can keep the momentum going. 269 more words

Photo Album: Percy Ebenezer Trower

This portrait is yet another photo from the collection of Percy Ebenezer Trower and it is of Percy himself.

Why I owe so much to Percy Trower

My family history wouldn’t be half as interesting if it wasn’t for my 2x great-uncle Percy Ebenezer Trower.

Without him I would have virtually no photos of my Trower ancestors and relatives, I would be short a dozen or so death certificates and copies of wills, a handful of letters and not to mention the wonderful diary (actually three volumes). 190 more words
