me or I?


Attached is a picture of my family and I last year around Christmas.


Is this correct?

A good way to check this is to remove the preceding part.


For example, you would say "Here is a picture of me" (not "Here is a picture of I"). So, it should be "Here is a picture of my family and me."


Similarly, you would say "I went on a trip," so "My friends and I went on a trip" (not "My friends and me went on a trip) is correct.


Hope this helps!

Attached is a picture of my family and me.... You must use an objective pronoun after the verb.
