 :) Wow, jloy326, thank you! I didn't expect another restore. These are absolutely stunning! You have managed to enhance the clarity of both photos to make them both so realistic. I appreciate the time taken to do this. Very much appreciated. Thank you, thank you! Deb

 :) :) :) :) Wow!!! You have all done amazing work on these two photos, exceeded my expectations by far. Carol, thank you! Dora would have been exceptionally pleased with this beautiful make over. She was clearly a pretty young woman (my great aunt) and you have enhanced her beauty. Thank you also, Japeflakes. These are stunning restores. The second photo that I submitted was not of great quality but have managed to do as ever, an amazing job. Very natural look and thank you for repairing the tears and spots that had damaged the photos. Loord74, these colour restores are strikingly beautiful and you have done her proud. I love these! The colour adds a quality of softness to her face in both photos. Handypandy, you have maintained Dora's natural beauty and managed to remove all the imperfections, thank you. The light and shade on Dora's face in your second photo is just lovely.
Thanks so much to all of you. I wish to copy them all and share them. Do I have your permission to do this? Thanks again, am over the moon, Deb

 :) Hi I am attaching two photos of Dora Aldred as a young woman. She was born in Manchester but emigrated as a young woman with her parents and young siblings to Melbourne, Australia. Dora was the youngest sister of my maternal grandfather. Thanks, Deb

 :) Thanks, Carol, I value your opinion on this. Deb

Looking at the two photos I think that they were different women. The women in the photo with the older woman (mother?) I think was taken at a later date. These women look more attractive than the women in the wedding photo.  :) Deb

Help needed to establish whether this is the same person. I know that the man in the photo in white uniform is definitely my grandfather, Edwin James Aldred who was born in Chorlton, Manchester in 1896 and emigrated to Australia around 1913-14 (working on merchant marine ships). On the back of the photo it states he was 22, so this photo was taken around 1918.
The other photo was dated by a rootschat expert as being post WW1, so if this is the case, it can't be the same person as my grandfather had a more receding hairline (so presumably older than the man in the other photo, if the same person).
Can I have your opinions, please? Both of the photos look like family members (one like one of my sister's sons and the other like her other son), so I can assume that these men are related, possibly brothers?
Thank you!!  :) PS I am using a rootschat restore (thanks to paj).

Similar cheekbones but military photo is too indistinct to see. Could you post a bigger photo? Deb

Thanks, Jim for your opinion. My grandfather was a steward on a merchant marine ship so this would fit his profile. I will repost the photo with another one of him that I think you may have already seen and will ask people whether it could be the same man. I would value your opinion on this. I will mark this post as completed and am hopefully allowed to repost the same photo, with different name. I believe that this could be my grandfather when he was younger than the other photo as in the other one he had a receding hairline though this would put the photo at pre 1916 when you say it is after this. It could be one of my grandfather's brothers. Thank you!

Hi Colm   I can't help you out with what you are asking for but I must comment that the man in the centre is a dead ringer for my father (whose family comes from county Kildare, not far from Dublin), surname McKay and I mean a dead ringer. I can tell you that if your relative is the man in the centre then the older men look nothing like the man in the centre aged (if I compare to my father). I will attach two photos of him to show you. By the way do you have McKay as a family name anywhere in your tree? PS Dad is aged 89 in this photo. May I ask which of the two men are your relatives?
