Going back six generations, I have 126 direct ancestors. I have images of only a sixth of them. Twenty, to be exact.
Here they are:
From top left across each row to bottom right:
One (of 64) great-great-great-great-grandparent — William M. Harrison (1817-1865); two (of 32) great-great-great-grandparents — Margaret Balkcum Henderson (1836-1915) and Mary Eliza Balkcum Aldridge (1829-1924); five (of 16) great-great-grandparents — Louvicey Artis Aldridge (1865-1927), Martha Miller McNeely (1855-1934), Harriet Nicholson Tomlin Hart (1861-1926), Edward C. Harrison (1847-1908) and Mary Brown Allen (1849-1917); six (of eight) great-grandparents — Bessie L. Henderson (1891-1911), J. Thomas Aldridge (1886-1968), Lon W. Colvert (1875-1930), Caroline McNeely Colvert Taylor (1883-1957), John C. Allen Sr. (1906-1948) and Mary Agnes Holmes Allen (1877-1961); all four grandparents — Margaret Colvert Allen (1908-2010), John C. Allen Jr. (1906-1948), Hattie Henderson Ricks (1910-2001) and Roderick Taylor (1883-1947); and my parents.
Hat tip to A. Kearns for the inspiration.

Great job Cousin. I am so proud of the research that you have done. I love the photo collage.
What handsome and beautiful people. This is a great idea! I may steal it, if that is okay with you. 🙂
I “stole” it myself, so please do! 🙂
I love the way you put it together. This is really something! ᐧ

It turns out that I only have 19, so I’m going to add myself to make an even 20. 🙂
I was hoping to be able to, but I just eked out a round 20. I was flummoxed at first as the templates I found were 4×4 and 6×6. Then I got a gentle suggestion: crop the extra rows.
