Orphan Photos Identified!

Two of the Orphan Photos that I posted have been identified.

This first one is Roland John Salmon and he is my step-grandmother's brother. (I posted about him here).

This second one, is Roland's wife Ann Hornett (I posted about her here).

With luck, I'll be able to identify some others that I have.


  1. How did they get identified? Was it someone on your blog. I have a few orphan photos of my own. They are two mysteries.

  2. Congratulations, Alana. They're beautiful images, by the way, and how wonderful that you were able to get them identified.

  3. Claudia, I recently made contact (via Ancestry) with my step-father's cousin who I haven't seen in 37 years and he is the one who identified the photos as his parents (my step-father's aunt and uncle). He also identified other photos that I hadn't had a chance to post yet - and now I won't have to. It's very exciting.

  4. How exciting to have made contact with the cousin and to identify the old pictures. I've been through pictures with my mother this week and making sure we identified everyone! (and the time and place).

  5. Congratulations on making the identification!
