I am deeply passionate about family photos, especially those of generations passed. These photos give a face … a feeling to an ancestor that we may never have had the chance of meeting. They connect the memories of past and present and should be cherished and preserved. Unfortunately, once these photos are lost there is no way to replace them.
Restoring these photos digitally is a way to preserve them in a format that can be saved forever. I have helped others with their photos in the past and am always open to doing more. If you are able to and interested in making a donation it is greatly appreciated, but I do not charge for this service. It is something I do because I feel it is important and not everyone has the ability to do it themselves.
If you have an old photo that is close to your heart and is in need of repair or restoration, please contact me and I will try my best to help.
Sample of Work
In celebration of Memorial Day, I have posted some of the WWI Draft Records I’ve collected from our family tree.
I spent a great deal of time this past weekend scanning childhood photos from a big red album. These are photos from my childhood. I have tried to order them chronologically, but I still have to go through each one and see if the back of the actual photo has any description/date that I can reference. Because of the size of this gallery, most of the photos have not yet been titled or tagged. I am hoping to do this incrementally over the next week.
