    If your ancestors had their pictures taken - and if the pictures still exist - they're probably going to be in a photo album or a box of old photos in one of your relatives' homes. It might be a relative you know, or it might be a distant cousin you've never heard of. If you really want to find these pictures, you'll have to track these relatives down!

    Let's take Sylvester and Nancy, for instance. Their pictures may have been in an album, or in a frame on their mantle. When they passed away, one of their kids (hopefully) took their pictures. Chances are it was a daughter, because it's usually the women who go through the family stuff and hang onto to sentimental things like photographs. But it could've been a son, too. Likewise, when that person passed away, one of their kids would've taken the pictures. Depending on how many kids, grandkids and great-grandkids they had, there could be dozens of people you'll need to check with to find out who's got the pictures.

    If you're lucky, some of these folks may be into genealogy, and you might be able to find them online on some of the genealogy websites and contact them. Here are a few places to check:

    Rootsweb's Worldconnect:

    http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op...

    Ancestry.com's public member trees:

    http://www.ancestry.com/Default.aspx

    If you find your ancestor's name in somebody's tree, contact the person who submitted the tree.

    You can also search, and post a message on, the Stroup Family message boards:

    Stroup Family message board at GenForum:

    Keep in mind that photography didn't become widely available until the 1850-60s, and at first is was rather expensive and mainly limited to big cities. So you're not likely to find a photo of someone who died before that time.

    You might have better luck faster it you type the words "photos of and the persons name" into google under the photo section or perhaps the more sections
