Doppelganger Django Unchained

In legend a doppelganger is a ghostly duplicate of a living person. There is no more ghostly duplicate of a living person than that of a photograph of someone taken over a hundred years before you were born. A photograph of someone that could be your double.

Here is a Civil War Carte-de-Visite of a handsome young man who could be the look-alike for Leonardo DiCaprio in Django Unchained.

An ancestor perhaps, or a true doppelganger? What do you think?.

Have you read the latest issue of Shades Of The Departed Magazine? You really should.

Stunning! Fills me with longing that my ancestors had pictures like that. Alas none.

Fran, I would have said that about once side of my family until I read a story written in the 30's by a long lost relative telling of the photographs of my GGGrandfather and Mother. The story had clues and now I'm searching, searching.
