I’m doing some genealogy researches; every few years I renew them trying to find some records that I still miss.
Everyone who has ever tried to find the ancestors knows that it isn’t easy even if you already have some docs, names or dates. Eastern European countries have had such a complicated history; you first must learn the geographical terms changes - before you even start your researches.
My family tree has many faces that I know well because my father has conserved every single document or photo he possessed. But there are a lot of my ancestors that I will probably never find about.
Sometimes I just sit down and paint their invisible faces as they appear in my imagination, like these.
If I ever get in possess of their real photos, I’ll put them in their place. If not, at least my family tree will look better :)
