It was usual for the family to gather in the parlour, generally on Sunday and talk, tell stories of family and friends with the photos in the albums as illustration. I was quite shocked on the anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic to see so many comments from younger people who were surprised to learn that the Titanic wasn't just a movie. This is why AncientFaces is so important, to me it's the electronic age version of the oral tradition on a global scale and the sheer volume of people who follow, comment and contribute seems to prove the point. But, as I got older I got curious about my heritage. We are all grateful to you all for providing us with this wonderful site. I was late getting back to work.

Thanks to you I am meeting my little sister for the first time next month. My family is my mother and father who raised me. I can't help but wonder how many other family pictures may have ended up in that store and why. I also can't help but feel that it was meant to be and that there is a purpose that this picture is coming home as you say. I can't even hold it in. My years of searching have just run into dead ends, so I had given up.

It's amazing that you even picked it up at the store and then went to all the extra effort to post it. In 1949, when he was 76 years old, comedian Milton Berle hosted the first telethon show. I had to add comments and write to you. This obit of Peter Arens is maintained by Peter's followers. I love AncientFaces, a while back I saw that you had labeled Garcia surname pictures. Considering the many years I have been searching for the name Zemidat, I find this is absolutely amazing that I have finally found a family member.

Recently I was contacted by someone who saw my pictures on AncientFaces who may well be a cousin. My long lost Aunt is now 86 years old and her Son and I are talking by phone and e-mails. Captain Grant was his Father and died in France in 1944 and is buried there. Thank you for noticing her in the store and for the website. It certainly has given me a connection to you, and I have a love for what you do.

I have tried for many years to find anyone with that name, and I have searched many genealogy web sites to no avail. I came home for lunch yesterday and decided to look at my email before going back to work. In 1885, Peter was only 12 years old when on January 24th, the Fenians - Irish Nationalists - set off dynamite bombs in the House of Commons chamber, Westminster Hall, and the Tower of London. I clicked on the link and the first search I did was for Woodruff, and Mamie was the first picture that came up. In 1890, at the age of 17 years old, Peter was alive when on January 2nd, Alice Sanger became the first female staffer to work in the White House. No one ever knew where or when she died or where she was buried. I hope you realize what a valuable service you provide and how grateful we are to have found you.

. I could hardly stand it. There was a time when even in the most modest households there were three cherished possessions, a family Bible. Four civilians and two policemen were injured. Well, I get goosebumps just writing this, I have found my biological family because of AncientFaces. The find in Hissarlik Turkey is still disputed as being a part of Troy. They were my great aunts and my great-grandmother! The Soviet Union and China backed North Korea and the U.

He was born in 1873. For 13 years, I have been searching for my grandmother's missing sister. It turns out my parents were too young when they had me and had to give me up. It makes me feel as though you have been my friend forever. We have received a much clearer photo of Captain Grant from his Son. What are the chances of this all just happening? I have loved AncientFaces since I first found it, it's the first thing I check when I turn on the computer.

By posting pictures of the visit to his gravesite - we connected through one of his brothers. I never knew my biological family. She was hired as a stenographer and, as such, took dictation. With our Canadian Remembrance Day here in 2 days - the timing could not be better. We have no information about Peter's family. I just can't tell you how excited I am. Thank you AncientFaces -Ron D.
