A mysterious photograph. A lost past. A family mystery. Lisa Rickett reports in The Guardian that modern technology has helped her identify a couple in an old family photograph as her paternal grandparents. Her family history was lost as no one was alive to identify the people in the picture.
Through an internet search, Rickett was able to finally know a little bit more about her family. She was also able to find someone who could tell her exactly who the people were: a long lost relative was found at last.
