Comparing Male Descendant Photos
Margaret Wanless in Scotland sent a photo of her husband's grandfather, James Wanless (1879-1968), wearing a hat and glasses. He was the son of William Ramsay Wanless, who was the son of "Cousin" James Wanlass (1827-1877, the baker).
We know that these men shared the same Y-Chromosomal DNA with our James Wanlass (1825-1895, the miner) and all of his direct male descendants. When we compared the photo that Margaret sent with photos of our James Wanlass's son, James Wanlass (1846-1921), we think we see a familial resemblance.
I'll post two photo so you can make a judgement. What do you think? Please leave a comment.
