Lost Faces -Old Photo Albums Found & Rescued

I've been busy setting up a new corner of Olive Tree Genealogy.I call it "Lost Faces -Old Photo Albums Found & Rescued"

One of my hobbies is going to flea markets and garage sales. Whenever I spot one of those old Photo Albums from the 1800s with family pictures, I have to buy it! I can't bear the thought that the album and photos will be lost or destroyed. Even though they aren't my ancestors, and they can be very expensive, I can't walk away without it.

What I'm doing with Lost Faces is putting online the list of all the albums I have saved, along with the list of photos and other documents (I have albums that contain funeral cards, memorial cards, obituaries, Christmas cards, and hand-written genealogies) and any research I've done on the family. I've also put up some of the photos

I hope that by putting this online, descendants will find a treasure.

http://www.rootsweb.com/~ote/faces/ is the little intro to this new corner of OTG. Read to the bottom and then choose the "List of Family Photo Albums"

I only have a few online so far, but the locations are from England to USA to Ontario and Saskatchewan.

Have a look, I hope you like it and that you find an ancestor there.
