Madness Monday - which is more frustrating?

OK I have a question that I would like to ask and I think it ties into the Madness Monday theme.

In your opinion, which is more frustrating?

1) Not having a picture of an ancestor that lived into the years that pictures were being taken?

Or

2) Having a copy of a 1930's letter stating that the writer will be sending a copy of a picture of her great-grandmother (my 3rd great grandmother) to the recipient of the letter, however, now no one in the family has the picture, knew it existed or can imagine what happened to it?

I sometimes wonder if it's better to know that it never existed than to know that it had lasted from before 1878 (that's when the 3rd great-grandmother died) all the way until the 1930's and now can't be found. Houdini would be proud!  Poof, what picture?

Any thoughts?


Hope you enjoyed, glad you stopped by and please come back again ;)
