Some of the links below, jump to items found throughout the entire site, then there are links that are of specific interest to Genealogist, like the Victorian albums, and Photo Dating, that can only be navigated to and from this page. We separated the two sections because of the overwhelming information that would exhaust the general public that are just looking for general restoration information.


 If there are any related topic or ideas for this section, you think we should include here  just let us know. and we may research it for you.  This site is constantly evolving, and being re-evaluated for accurate information. Please tell us if there are any discrepancies.  We understand that you enjoy the hunt for information that may lead you to that next great find, so now, for your reading and viewing pleasure, here is your corner of our site.

 e-mail us to post a message. Great exposure for like minded genealogist.. Have your images posted as thumbnails so your relatives can see and reorder copies.

Some clients use this section for their relatives to view and order prints from us. This is a very generous offer, since they already paid for the restorations and the relatives just pay for their copies. 


The Value of Photographs




Don't miss seeing what we can do with "Documents", even if you don't have one for restoration you can see and tell a friend of the possibilities.  Same goes for newspaper clippings that become brittle.
We have had many request to make thumbnails for use in genealogy software. This may be something you would like to know more about.
