Our Family's Ancestral Wall

Part of a family's treasures are its memories. Our family would like to share a few of our most treasured possessions with you ... pictures of our ancestors.

We have a few here that have no names. Can you help us identify these people?

To see an enlargement, simply click on the thumbnail picture and you'll be taken to its original picture. There, you'll also find an e-mail hyperlink to the picture's submitter.

If you'd like to submit pictures of your ancestors to the Homestead, simply e-mail Colleen Pustola, webmistress. The sole requirement is that your ancestor have been one of the surnames listed on the variant spellings page.


Sometime, when I have become a quiet portrait on the wall,
Will you, my fair descendant, stop to think of me at all?

Suppose your hands are shaped like mine and you have my keen sense of fun.
Will there be one to tell you so...then...when my days are done?

If you love books and fires and songs, and silver moons in velvet skies,
Toss me a look of shared delight from those, my own dark eyes.

For there are kinships in a curl and namesakes in a spoken name;
The wine of life may yet be poured by faded hands within a frame.
