If you can identify someone in a picture, we want to know! Again, tell us the reference number and any information you may have about the person in the photo.

Claim Form Checklist

Things you will need to submit photo claims:
The number on the photo. Example: 001-001-001. All of these numbers designate where we have the photos stored. We can't locate your photos without it! If you can't read the number on the photo, then make a note of that and tell us the number of the photo before or after it.
A description of the photo. This helps us to make sure that we are pulling the correct photo for you. If you can remember anything that was written on the back of the photo, please include that information.
A good contact method for you! We require a phone number, but we can also contact you by email if you wish. If we can't get ahold of you, we can't get your picture back to you!
