  1. I am looking for someone who could tell me where to send some old photos I have of around the area. I was born in Worcester where my grandfathers Finnish family had settled off Lincoln St. in the 1930-40.
    my email is thank you for your attention.

  2. I have old pictures and records from the central church in Worcester. They belonged to my great aunt. Some are pictures from church retreat of 1927. Can you direct me to an organization who would preserve them for the city of Worcester.
