When he gets older I want to make sure he understands about his family history and where he comes from. It’s a bit like this WEB site. It’s all part of recording his history so he can look back and see what Mum and Dad were thinking and doing before he was old enough to remember!
I realize that Ben won’t even look at this tree for the next few years, but it’s really nice to see where he fits into the English Family Tree. He is the 5th Generation of the Vass Family that we have records for and on my mother’s side he is the 7th Generation we have records for.
Just to give a perspective to this. The Gentleman sitting in the center of the picture on the right would be Ben’s Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Grandpa pictured around 1870.
