The Sepia Saturday theme for this week centers around group portraits of unknown families. While I do not have any unidentified portraits in my own family tree, I do however, have a number of what I call "other people's ancestors" who are unidentified. So I submit for your viewing pleasure (or not) these family portraits from the past and we are all left to wonder who they were and what their stories might have been.
