Which of these ladies is my grandmother?

Tue Apr 22, 2014 1:23 pm

Hi there

I would welcome any assistance with dating this photo. It was given to me about 30 years ago by an uncle (now deceased) who said one of the women was my Irish grandmother. I can't remember which of the women in the photo was she. My grandmother was born in Ireland about 1897. There is nothing on the back of the photo to assist with dating.

Thank you for your help.

There seems to be facial similarities with the two women - shape of eyes and eyebrows and face. Could the lady on the right with the high neck collar be grandmother and the other her daughter and mother of the children? This doesn't solve your problem because the younger one might be a sister of your grandmother or your grandmother. However, it may be that the older one could be your gt grandmother. Sorry, I think that might be a bit confusing - hope not. Could you work it out with census returns perhaps. I do not have any details to go on.
