I recently found an article about a genealogist in Maryland who found an old photo album in an antique store, purchased it, spent several hours researching the photos, and eventually reunited the album with family. The article can be found here.
The article also mentioned that the genealogist had blogged about the photos and the research. A quick search turned up the blog; the link to the “master” post containing all of the posts related to the story can be found here.
Another “feel good” story!
