On 17th December 1881 my grandfather, Sidney Henry Buckle, was born. On the same day his twin sister, Sarah Elizabeth was born too; whether before or after Sidney Henry is unknown.
I wrote a blogpost on this day last year to commemorate the anniversary of Sidney Henry's birth. You can read it here.
The photograph below is the oldest family history photo in our collection. I think Sidney Henry might be the little boy in the front. If he is, then I think the other people include his sister and his father, John Henry Buckle. The oldest people might be Sidney Henry's grandparents, Christopher and Harriet Buckle. If they are then this is a photograph of my great-great grandparents. But then again it might not be any of them because NOBODY WROTE THEIR NAMES ON THE BACK OF THE PHOTO. Aaaaah! This is so frustrating!
