Lost & Found - is there a place people can send photo albums they find?

+3 votes
Over the last decade I've been lucky enough to come across a few family scrapbooks and reunite them with their families, and in some cases had things fall into my lap (like a box left behind my car) with family note books from 1890 etc.

My partner floated the idea by that I should to start a "formal submission place" that is publicized etc where people can send things they find that need to make their way home.  EG Albums, scrapbooks, family bibles etc.

Before I look at creating something new, is there anything that exists already?  As I know I've had a few people reach out to me where they have family bibles etc

That would be awesome!  I have photos from distant family, but cannot find anyone in the more direct family who will respond to see if they'd like the photos.  

I was very thankful back in the early days of Ancestry.com to be contacted by a man who had found a photograph of my great great grandmother at an estate sale.  I am forever grateful to him for taking the time to look up the information on the photo and finding me on Ancestry in order to send it.
