The FamilySearch.org website is an extremely valuable place to look for previously unknown photos of your own ancestors. Although the program has not been online for very long, there are already millions of photographs available. As you look at your family members in the FamilySearch.org Family Tree, if anyone has uploaded a photo, document or story, there will be a number in the Memories link to that individual. Here is a screenshot showing the link to an ancestor's Memories:
When you click on this link, you will see whatever your relatives have added to this person's Memories. Here is a screenshot of this same person's photos:
You never know what treasures you will find. If you want to see all of the photos added by your relatives, then you click on the Memories link at the top of the page and look at the People link. Here is part of my People page:
What if you don't find any photos? Then get busy and upload some of your own. You can add .jpg, .tif, .bmp, and .png images up to 15MB is size by simply dragging the icon of the photo from your computer onto the upload section of the Memories. Here is a screenshot of the upload section:
Once you upload a photo, you can tag the people in the image and attach the photo to each person's detail page, such as was done with the image of Henry Martin Tanner above.
