Welcome to Restored Memories and Misplaced Ancestors.
I digitally restore treasured photographs. I also find photos of "Ancestors" lost or misplaced in antique stores in Michigan. With identification on the back of the photo, I have hopes to find their families. This blog is my journey of these two endeavors. Below you will see the links to my 3 website locations.

Little Grandma Lillian
This photo is a mess. Spots all over, stains here and there, a tear, chips and cracks. Just a messy mess. Good thing there is software to fix these problems. Good thing I love restoring these photos.
After Sepia Tone
She is holding her doll and her short pixie hair cut, I could only imagine her in a pink dress. She may have originally worn a white dress, but pink is just the only color a little girl should wear.
Adding a touch of color adds something special to these old photos. I usually like to keep the photos as original as possible, but adding a touch of color adds something special to these photos. This project I created in black & white, sepia tone and colorized.
one belongs to a friend of mine. The adorable tiny girl is her
grandmother. Little Lillian Long we figured
is about 3 years old in this photo in 1906. Enjoy your photo Mickey! It was a pleasure working on it and meeting your grandmother.
