Lost Letter Project

Lost Letters

The Lost Letters Project is my way of rescuing lost heirlooms from thrift and antique stores, ebay and other sellers. My goal is to reunite items that I come across, with their family.

Items in the Lost Letter Project will include pictures, letters, and document that I find, purchase and then attempt to find their rightful owners.

Please feel free to check back often, as I will be continually adding items. If you know of a descendent for any of the items, please email and let me know.

I am not the only person trying to reunite people with their past. Websites like Dead Fred (, provide a forum for the public to send in photos to be reunited with family members. For other websites that are reuniting families with their ancestor’s pictures, see Megan Smolenyak’s website Honoring Our Ancestors (
