FIVE generations of a Rigside family gathered in Douglas on Saturday for a line-up with a twist.

Because baby Damien Kirkwood doesn’t need to trace his family tree – he can look back to his great-great-grandparents along two strands of his family.

Damien, who is now four weeks old, lined up to be photographed with his mum Samantha Thomson (21), his grandmother, Kirsty Thomson (39), his great-grandmother Anne Galbraith (60) and his great-great-grandmother Annie Sneddon (80) who is in sheltered housing in Douglas.
