Vintage Photographs - My New Blog
As an offshoot of my two blogs Rogers Family History and Teresa's Tangled Roots I have stumbled into a collection of vintage photographs, mostly through my eBay addiction. It has always disturbed me how many thousands and thousands of "ancestor" photos are out there in antique stores and on eBay that no one knows who they belong to. As a genealogist who would give anything to have pictures of her ancestors, it just kills me to see these orphan pictures unclaimed my anyone. These are someone's family, their ancestors and I wonder sometimes as I look at them if one of them could possible be one of my ancestors. As a collector of anything and everything, I have started buying up some of these photos and felt I needed to start sharing these somehow. Most have no names - why didn't people put names on the back of these pictures?!? I will try to post many of the many photos I have, perhaps someone will recognize one or two. If you do, please let me know, I would be happy to reunite these photographs (people) with their descendants if contacted.
