Closing down

I am going to shut down the Orphan Photos blog.  We have been up and running for almost 6 months and the blog just hasn’t been as popular as I had hoped it would be.  This blog only gets a fraction of the traffic that Ancestoring does so I really need to be focusing on the main blog.  I am not going to remove the photos that I have already posted, at least not yet.  I want the photos out there for everyone to see just in case someone can identify one of them.  You can still ask me questions and I will still help you date your photos, all you have to do is email me.   I will still be rescuing photos from eBay and yard/estate sales and I encourage you to do so as well.
