    If cepia,or black and white, sell them . If new photos you can throw away UNLESS, pics of American Indians, Military or anything of historical significance.

  • Well, I am going to try and sell mine. I have suitcases full of them. I can't ask anyone as they have all passed on. The writing on some of them is not legible, and are in various European languages. If I can't sell them, i will just give away. Better than sitting in suitcases in my garage.

    • Thanks William! Doubtful I have anything of any significance, certainly worth exploring though. I have tried Google translate without much success. When I dig them out again, I will post fronts and backs of the photos and see what you all think. My sister-in-law sells things on EBay, she might be able to help me. Thanks again. 🌞

    upload to Facebook and ask if anyone recognises the people in the photos, it could be an

    interesting and fun project... i.e. Remember When or Do You Know Who ??

    that is what I would do..

    Yes, I like Jane's suggestion. What about going to a local Senior Center, where they have gatherings & play Bingo one day a week. Or contacting Ancestry.com, perhaps they could post the pix, not sure.

    Are you trying to find the family or are you wanting to use them in your decor ? Vintage photos are great in decor and you can have fun making up a back story lol.
