McCracken Family Photo from Northwest Florida, USA
« on: Saturday 11 May 19 19:18 BST (UK) »
Dear Rootschatters,

At only 20 Kb, I'm afraid there might not be much to work with here, but would it be possible for someone to restore and color this little photo?

This is Michael J. McCracken's mother who grew up to be a fine looking woman. Since it's Mother's Day, I thought it would be nice if I could surprise my friend Michael with a better image of his mother as a little girl.

Would it be possible for someone to help me with this please if you think it's possible?

Many thanks for your kind help.

Best Regards,

Billy

PS- Here are some comments from Michael McCracken about the photo:

 "He was from France and my Mom was actually born in Haiti. Her mom was from France and her dad was a US Marine stationed there. Not totally sure but her grandfather I think owned a cafe in Haiti. I have some more pics that were taken in Haiti. It seemed a paradise back then."
