Got this one for a bargain today at the flea market.

I paid 80 cents.

One of my other hobbies is keeping an eye out for old family photos that have become separated from their rightful owners by time and distance.

I look for the ones with writing on them.

I found a tree on Ancestry with some of these folks in it.

Sent a private message to the owner, asking if he wants the photo.

Now, we wait...

I love this. I have the same inclination, but so far have not purchsed photos to return to families. I have tried to find the families for photos of soldiers and friends of my mother that I found in her scrapbook. I have had some success, and it makes me happy to think of their surprise when they first read my email. However, I have not been able to find any family members for my mother's best friend, and I have many photos of her. I had no response from the one son I tried to contact - why wouldn't you want photos of your mother?
