Do you know who any of these people are?

Most genealogists experience it, and many may consider it to be the worst sort of brick wall there is: a mystery photo.

Photos are beautiful souvenirs of the past. Photos of your ancestors can breathe life into the story of your family drawing it out of the flat world of dates and life events and making you feel more strongly connected to your ancestors than you otherwise might feel.

But a photo full of strangers who may or may not be part of your family can be a very frustrating thing to encounter.

Luckily, OGS operates a lost photo service. If you have unwanted photos of unknown people, send them to us. We will archive them and occasionally publish them in hopes of reuniting the lost photo with its family.

Come check out our lost photographs page and see if you recognize anyone. You may help someone else escape their mystery photo nightmare.
