Upload your vintage photos

Share the faces and places in your family history

We all have old photos of our family. Vintage photos of everyday life or celebrating holidays, our first cars, family portraits, trips, weddings and anniversaries, military leave and more. Through uploading your family photos at AncientFaces, you are collaborating with our community who believe in sharing family history to preserve our past.

Do you have a bunch of photos stored away in a shoe box? Have a couple that you think are just amazing, chronicle a historical event, or that absolutely prove your relationship to some famous celebrity or member of royalty?

Join the community today to share your photos with the world!

Helpful Tips:

Image size and format: We know you have a beautiful photo of your relatives and you want every shining glory of the image to be displayed. Remember, size limitations exist so that everyone can share their photos. Please upload photos in .jpg format and under 1MB in size.

Surnames: Enter only one surname per photo you upload. Don't worry if your photo contains the images of multiple families. Simply enter one family name and then add the other people's full name under "People in photo" which appears on the final page of the upload process.

Description: Describe the photos you upload with as much detail as possible. This includes people's full names, dates and locations. Use keywords to help others who are searching for your photo.

People in photo: On the final page of the upload process, make sure to enter the full first and last name of each person you recognize into the appropriate area. If you don't know who the people are don't worry, and just skip this step.
