PHOTO ALBUM INDEX

image TREASURE BOX OF OLD PHOTOS

Photos that once had no real value and that were placed in an album, stored in a shoe box, buried in a drawer or kept safe in a family Bible are now valuable treasures to those of us who do genealogy. Since family photos are all that remain from yesterday to tell us about the features of our ancestors we treasure the ones that we find.

It is an unselfish act and cost nothing to post a photo, so please consider sharing your old family photos with our web site, so that others may also enjoy your treasures.

There is no greater feeling than seeing a photo of one of your ancestors for the first time so take a walk through these pages and see the treasures that await your discovery.

To send to our treasure box of old photos - address mail to: Donna Cooper, Barry County Coordinator

Warning: Taking photos from this web site to post on another web site is a violation of our copyright - for that you need permission from the submitter and the coordinator.

You do not need permission to save them to your computer and to keep for your own personal research and pleasure.
