Not that this is a chat board.....yes, I have seen many family albums in Antique Shops, and many old family photos...It really bothers me that these are someones grandparents, ggGrandparents etc...and that they are actually selling them!......another instance that really made me mad, was a TV show, Restoring America...It showed a home built in the early 1800's that people bought and restored, they found a whole treasure chest of family photos, information, genealogy in the atic. Descendants of the family still lived in the area...but these people kept all the treasure and said it should stay with the history of the home. I got so mad I emailed the Show and gave them a piece of my mind. People make the history...not buildings....people build them. Those family photos dating back to the mid 1800's belong to the descendants! There were Civil War Photos, family photos. If those were of my family I would have taken them to court!!
