For me there is 1 photo that exists which is of my great grandma's only brother as she had 4 other sisters. He only lived from 1892 to 1915 before getting killed in a tragic accident down the coal mines. My Dad got to meet all her sisters but knew nothing about him although there were rumours going around that someone had died down the pits. She must have kept this photo hidden until my Dad's cousin found it for me. The photo must have been taken round the time the 1911 census came out. There's no photos of the 3 older girls who had left home by then. Him, her, her younger sister and her parents (my great great grandparents) all had their photo taken the same time which she also discovered. The photo can now be seen on Family Search and Ancestry. Do you have any short lived ancestors that managed to get a photo taken?
