Image for the September Genealogy Blog Party: Lost & Found


Lost and Found

Have you ever found an old photo album or family Bible in an antique store and thought, “Gosh, I’ll bet somebody would like to have that.”

Or has your family lost a precious heirloom over the years, and you would love to get it back?

This month, let’s pay it forward and generate a bit of “genealogical Karma.”

Share what you’ve found and maybe someone who wants it will find it. And hopefully, what you’ve lost will come back to you. 😊


Q: Tell us what you’ve found ~ OR ~ tell us what you’ve lost.


Examples include:

  • photo albums, scrapbooks, or loose pictures
  • school yearbooks
  • letters and diaries
  • family Bibles
  • certificates, awards, or medals
  • manuscripts and other writings
  • video and audio recordings
  • cookbooks or recipe collections
  • kitchen items and cookware
  • jewelry
  • clothing
  • books
  • musical instruments

Basically, any sort of memorabilia or family heirloom that could be lost or found would apply!


📌 Each post must include at least one image.

📌 Previously published posts are acceptable. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel to participate.
