Volunteers upload photos from their collection or orphan photos they purchase, and share them with the community. I can tell you that in one of the client projects I worked on I found uploaded to the website an entire album’s worth of photos, purchased by an AncientFaces member at an antique store, that we reunited with the family due to the generosity of that member. AncientFaces is a great website to bookmark and check back with regularly.

Probably the first thing people notice about Dead Fred is the unusual name – but this website is an important photo archive, and in some cases the repository of orphan photos that might help you find an ancestor. Dead Fred is a collaborative effort of family historians who own photos or find orphan photos that they want to share. Search by surname, keyword, or a more detailed (advanced) search. An option to contact the submitter of the photograph might result in finding even more photos of your family.

New Genealogy Search Engine at Kincrawler.com Kin Crawler is a web crawler/search engine that works in a similar method as Google but with one major difference: it is constantly crawling the web looking for any pages that pertain solely to genealogy. [It] has over 3 million pages in the index so far, [consisting] mainly [of] the free content from the USGenweb, Rootsweb pages, and many other sites that are considered to be good free alternatives to using pay sites. The plan is to expand that “web crawl” to as many genealogy sites as can be identified. If you don’t find what you want on Kin Crawler today, you might return in a few months and try again. By that time, Kin Crawler probably will be expanded significantly. https://
