Hi Nicki The history that I have on the my Verhaeghe family only dates back to 1890, my grandfather Camiel. I don't know anything about his siblings or parents. He was born in Ruiselede and died 1963 in Passendale.
As for artists in our family. I have in the past 5 years taken up painting but have been very creative all my life. There is also a Bernard Verhaeghe in belgium that is a sculpturer. (I have a cousin Bernard, but I'm not sure if he is the sculpturer.) Our family does have creativity in different areas ie: music, photograghy, inventing electronic gadgets, and crafts.
Anyway if you are willing I would love to see the painting that you are referring to. Thanks Carla
