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.

Marcia Kennedy from Seattle
"Marcia Kennedy, Seattle, My Cousin" is what written on the back of this lovely photo. She has a pretty smile, 1940ish curly blonde hair and Claudette Colbert style eye browses.
A quick research on Ancestry.com I found a Marcia Kennedy in a 1940 census, born about 1904 in Michigan, married to Fred W. Kennedy living in Seattle Washington with their 3 kids Clyde, Myrtle and Verlin. Also living with them at that time are 3 children Katherine Simpokos, Dorothy Simpokos and William Simpokos. Perhaps they are nieces and nephew of either Marcia or Fred.
I found this photo in an antique store in Michigan. I am not positive I found the correct Marcia in this census record, there were other Marcia Kennedy's listed. But this one makes sense, my finding the photo in Michigan, Marcia is born in Michigan.
