a picture of my great great gandmother
« on: Friday 28 February 14 22:03 GMT (UK) »
I have a picture of my ggreatgrandmother born in 1831,but the picture is not in good shape. I have seen some of the work done here and must say, you are all doing an amazing job ! :)
I have been working on my tree for some years now and if anyone needs help in Norway just let me know , would love to help.

I do so hope someone can fix this picture. Under her lip looks like someone drew a moustace  :o

Can anyone fix this? I would like to see it in colour as well as black and white.
thank you
louisa
