5 Generations of Mothers

In honour of Mother's Day here are four generations of mothers whose DNA is part of me. From left to right:

My 2nd great-grandmother Sarah (Elvery) Stead (1836-1867), her daughter my great-grandmother Sarah (Stead) Simpson (1862-1952), her daughter my grandmother Ruth (Simpson) Fuller (1894-1985), her daughter my mother Joan (Fuller) McGinnis (1916-2009) and me Lorine McGinnis Schulze

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there!


  1. Wonderful that you can put all those generations of photos together. I'm sure you share more than just DNA.

  2. I'm really impressed with this lineup. And the photo of you is, frankly, glamorous!

  3. Mariann - you are so kind. And you know I chose what I considered one of my more flattering photos! I don't take a very good picture so I really had to hunt :-)

  4. Colleen - it was fun to put this together and really study all our photos. I'm so lucky to have these!

  5. Love the diagonal, and the photos ! another great idea.
