Do you have talent to spare? We need help with PHOTO RESTORATION:

Vance family archives contain many wonderful unpublished pictures. Most of these need digital restoration to be presentable. If you have Photoshop skills and would like to help out, please get in touch. Be sure that we'll acknowledge your work with a healthy shout-out here on the site.
