Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

For questions about this site or any photos posted here, please contact me!  If you plan to ask if I can help identify a photo, please note, I am not a historian or a genealogist. I will try, but photos that do not have names, dates or other identification are beyond my abilities. The best guess I can give would be based on clothing or photo types. You may be asked to send me a scan of your photo. The higher quality, the better.

Lots of people ask me for records from a photographer who made their relative’s photograph. I DO NOT HAVE RECORDS OF WHO SAT FOR PHOTOS AT A STUDIO.

I get tons of email and I read every single one. I might not be able to reply to them all, and I may even reply late, but I appreciate every single message!
