CREATE YOUR ANCESTORS! $1.00 ea.While I was glad to pay only $1 the suggestion of creating your own ancestors didn't sit well with me at all.
Are there people who really do that? I know there is bound to be a bad apple in a every bunch.
My goal here is to find old photos and other ephemera that have inscriptions or definite markings of the person who originally owned the lost family treasure so I can at least attempt to reunite them with the correct family members. Therefore, I tend to stay away from photos that are unidentifiable. I only bought two of those photos, but I might just end up going back and getting them all for fear that someone actually will create their own ancestors!
So this has got me to thinking. Should I start putting a watermark or something on the photos I post? Or disable saving images?

I hate to think that there is actually someone desperate enough to put someone else's ancestor's face in their family tree. Maybe a watermark will force more communication about a lost family treasure.
I would appreciate your input.
