20 people showed pictures of their cool ancestors, and here is a grandmother with strippers and great-grandfather with a pet lion
Each of us in the family has at least one relative who can and should be proud of. Some of them defended their homeland in the war, the second were outstanding artisans or creative personalities, and the third looked so cool that it was impossible to stop looking at them. People decided not to hide pictures of their cool ancestors in family albums, but shared their photos with the whole Internet, for which they should be thanked.
