Website Launched For Reuniting & Identifying Lost Photos

Photo Grafix has launched "Lost and Found Photos." Quoting from the company's announcement:

Many customers have asked us if we could identify photographs they inherited from relatives or rescued from the garbage dump. We have also met skilled and generous people who have helped others confirm locations, dates, and sometimes names of people in those kinds of photographs. The goal of Lost and Found Photos is to facilitate such connections. Those who would benefit from using this site:
Owners of unidentified photos
Professional and amateur Photo Identification specialists

This is a free service. Registration is only required for posting photos.
The new web site currently is in the testing phase. It does look good. For more information, look at

NOTE: The photo accompanying this post is of Dick Eastman's ancestor, Orman Eastman, who was born in Corinth, Maine.
