Today is International Women’s Day and March is Women’s History Month. It is important to celebrate and tell our female ancestors’ stories as often these are not told enough.
Today I am going to show the images of some women of my line.
My Mother Violet Noreen Busby 1940-2012 aged 17
My maternal Grandmother Myrtle Doris Weeks 1917 – 2001 aged about 18
My paternal Grandmother Lilian Maud Philpott 1910-1976 aged 51 at her son’s wedding
My Great grandmother Violet Rollason 1885-1957 before her marriage guessing around 1900, mother of Myrtle Doris Weeks
Another Great Grandmother Alice Jane Lewis 1873-1966 around 1899 mother of Lillian Maud Philpott)
A Great Great Grandmother Lucy Evans 1860-1936 (mother of Violet Rollason) date unknown but guessing around 1900 or so
My Great Great Grandmother Elizabeth Cleaver 1824 – 1898 mother of Richard John Rollason husband to Lucy Evans
These are just some of the women who have contributed to me being me.
