Photo’s of days gone by, placed in an album, buried in a drawer or kept safe in a family bible. They may be all that is left to bring back a long lost memory, relive a better day, or give us a glimpse of the ancestors we will never meet. By sharing your keepsakes others may also enjoy a glimpse of the past and maybe see for the first time, a photo of their ancestor.

Do you have pictures of your ancestors with Jersey County connections you would like to preserve and share with us? Scanning photo’s to be placed in this album could be the best thing you could do to preserve them. If lost or destroyed a copy will always be here to retrieve and print out. You may send pictures of historic sights, buildings, cemeteries, etc. in Jersey County, too, as well as Unidentified Photos.

If you would like to submit a photo please follow these easy steps:
1 – Scan them,
2 – Save them in .jpg or .gif format, (.jpg is prefered for quality)
3 -Send me an email message with information about the photo, identifying the person(s), place, etc.
4 – Attach the photo to the email message. Click here for email address.

If you do not have a scanner you can submit photo’s by having a quality photocopy made at a place like Kinko’s and snail mailing it to me. I will scan the photo for you, place it online and return the copy.
