Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / Re: My Mam in need of some TLC, please?

Carolyn that's gorgeous! Love the colours of the brickwork. These threads are so interesting, it fascinates me to see all the different interpretations of the original pictures. Not just the colouring but the different details people pick out. I noticed you had given her white bars on her shoes - I thought the white was part of the picture cracking, but now I think I maybe need new glasses  ;)

And one with a blue tinge. Just for a change!


A quick fix for your lovely Mam.


Carolyn - that's a lovely sharp job! Here's another - I don't expect you need anymore Dannemois but I enjoyed doing it. My second restoration attempt ever  :)


What a great photograph. I'm looking forward to seeing the result when some of the clever people on here have had a go at it. An amazing likeness between the two oldest children.

Cheers ... and "Oh gawd, I've got to read the whole thing?" :)
I'll go look for it.

 ;D Sorry about that SC - I didn't realise the thread was as long as it is and I was on my way out but thought I'd do a quick reply. I think there must be a few posts containing the voucher code because that wasn't the one I saw. Never mind, so long as you have it!

There is a voucher code in one of the posts on this thread - I used that and it worked


Roxburghshire / Re: Cavers one-name study

We have a connection with the Cavers - my gggfather Andrew Keddie married Margaret Cavers in Galashiels in 1875. Her family all migrated to Canada - are you aware of this site all about her family in Canada ?

I just watched that too!!! I was hopping up and down yelling 'Nooooooooo' (bit late I know considering it was a replay!)

I couldn't do it - there must be someone in the family who would look after it  :'(

Having said that - not everyone is so interested in family history and/or may not have any close family, so it's not so important to them. Not many of my family are that interested either, so anything they aren't interested in is likely to be sold off.

My friend is desperately trying to get hold of all the family photos and papers belonging to his great aunt before they get chucked out now that she has alzheimers and her home is being sold off.... we've seen lots of interesting things in the past but she would never let any of it out of her sight, and his fear now is that someone else in the family will just throw all the papers away as useless.
