Photograph Showcase: Isabella McLaren AGAIN!

Isabella Boles
Isabella McLaren and unknown child


Recently, one of my Scottish cousins found me through my blog.  Bonus, she actually lives in Scotland.  We have been sharing information and photos this past week and among other treasures, she doubled my photo collection for Isabella McLaren, my 4th great-grandmother, when she shared this little gem with me.

The photo is very small and most easily viewed on a screen.  It looks like a very good match for the other photo I have of Isabella.  What do you think?

My new cousin also told me which of our shared cousins shared this photo with her.  That tidbit gave me confidence in the photo label.

I LOVE the cousin connections I make because of my blog.  ❤️



Happy Thursday, I hope you make a cousin connection AND photo discovery very soon!  xoxo

  1. That’s exciting! I will share that photo with my sister. The Boles connections are fascinating. Thank you Amber.

    1. YES!!! It really is the best part of blogging – all of the cousin connections that lead to more discoveries and lots of sharing. ❤️❤️❤️

  2. I’m dreadful at recognising and comparing people but even I can tell it’s the same person! 🙂

    You could get that photo much bigger and see it in more detail by scanning it at a very high resolution. I’d suggest a minimum of 1200 dpi or ppi. I do ones of this size at that and sometimes 2400.

    1. I wish I could! This specific scan was done by one of my Scottish cousins years ago – who sadly died just a few weeks ago – and then shared by him to the cousin who shared it with me last week. It’s one of those situations where this is likely the best we will ever see. But I’ll take it!! She’s my fourth great-grandmother, I never expected to see any photos of her. ❤️❤️❤️
