How Ancestry.com Helped Solve a Mystery with an Old Photograph
Some stories seem lost forever, until a kind stranger fills in the missing pieces.
This is my great-great-great grandmother on my mom’s side. This photograph was sent to me by a thoughtful internet stranger who purchased a stack of old photos and a family tree at an estate sale and used @ancestry to track me down. Amazing!
I guess my cousin who originally owned these pictures never married and didn’t have any kids to pass them on to. I couldn’t believe a stranger would go through all of that work, but I was so glad she found me!
It was very special to be able to put a face to my matriach’s life. ~shared by @mustardseedtrees
