Do you know what your great-grandparents looked like?

Have you come across a box or old trunk full of old photographs of your ancestors? Isn't it fun to look at them and see if you resemble them? Whose side of the family do you look like? If our ancestors had not had these images taken and printed, we would only be able to imagine what they looked like.

What is the condition of the pictures from that old box or trunk? Are they still pristine because they were carefully stored? Probably not. Many will have moisture/water marks on them, be discolored, scratched, or may be torn and have missing pieces. If you have old pictures of your ancestors that may need restoration before you display them, please contact me and I will help you get great-grandpa and great-grandma looking their best!

Here is a before and after image of my husband's great-grandparents. It was originally stored in an oval frame with a rounded front. It had some water marks and discolored spots on it. I restored it as a surprise for my mother-in-law for Christmas. Now everyone in the family has a copy so they can remember Ma and Pap Bowman!
