Connecticut Genealogy – Mystery Photograph;
Keywords: Connecticut; East Lyme; Niantic; Mystery Photo
Sometime before 1970 as a Connecticut resident I bought two photos in Brass frames. They are more likely pictures of the same young man. They were purchased in an antique store which ‘by memory’ was on the corner of Old River Road and Rt 156. At the time, the brass oval frame with its concave glass was its selling point and not the old pictures inside the two frames. A few years later, I moved to Australia, which for the most part, I have lived for the last 36 years.
Now after many years of moving for work relocations, the two frames and their pictures have reappeared from my many stored boxes. In the meantime since 2000 I have begun my own search of both my Irish/Polish heritage and my husband’s Aussie roots, tracing the family history and trying to unravel the mysteries of our own many unidentified photos. In that time I have thought often about these two photos and the young man in them. I would love to find their rightful ‘genealogical’ families for the cost of shipping the photos to them.
The problem is though that the forum does not have any method to post the picture. Any ideas?
