Welcome!

I reunite identified family photos that I find in antique shops and second hand stores with genealogists and family historians. If you see one of your ancestors here and would like to obtain the original, feel free to contact me. Donations of pre-1920 photographs are also most welcome. I hope you enjoy your visit!

Can you uncover more details about Richard's life?

  1. I suspect this is your man:

    The 1910 US census doesn't list an occupation.

    The 1905 NY state census shows him as a City Lawyer and married to an Emma who is listed in later censuses as "Minnie". They appear to have been childless.
