Although there are at least three memorial pictures (and two heads) missing from this large headstone in Chicago’s Bohemian National Cemetery, the photograph that remains provides a plethora of genealogical clues.
Not to mention what an amazing treasure the photograph itself must be for descendants of the Benes family!
I don’t have any post-mortem photos of my own ancestors, but my husband has several.
Do you have any after-death photos in your family history collection? How do you feel about them?
Are they treasures? Do they creep you out? Or is it a little of both?
