Colorado Gold Mine


This site is dedicated to reuniting families with the memorabilia their ancestors left behind.

Have you ever received a document, just to find out it didn't belong to any branch of YOUR family tree?

Have you run across an old family Bible, but it isn't for YOUR family?

What about an old letter? Have you ever seen old photos, family Bibles or other family memorabilia offered for sale in flea markets, antique shops, or auctions and wondered if someone is looking for them?

If you have found someone else's family memorabilia and would like to see it reunited with family members, read our Submissions Page.

Do you have family memorabilia you would like to share with other descendants who may not know it even exists? If you'd like to share with others, contact me.

I will post a listing here, but proof of relationship will be necessary to obtain the object.

I have the Peter & May ABRANT Family Bible presented to them by Peter's parents in 1904. Within are a few photos, newspaper clippings and several handwritten notes of the family birth / marriage / deaths / obituaries. The family lived in the Colorado Springs, CO area in the 1900 - 1930's, with the ancestors originating in Kansas. John William Abrant graduated from Colorado High School in 1934.

I will gladly give this treasure to the family upon documented proof of relationship. Contact David Thompson in Arvada, Colorado via e-mail at or or call my work telephone 303-940-2883.

I came across a picture of a 6 month old baby named Ralph Carr. He is wearing a long gown. I don't know the date it was made but I would think 1900 or earlier. On the front of the picture is the photographers name and address. G. W. McDonald, 1337 Lorimar St., Denver, Colo.
