Hi Judy,

I have an Ancestry account, and I don't think you're missing anything. I see your grandparents on a couple of family trees, but I don't see any pictures. These trees all seem to use Census information, which should be available through free sources, such as FamilySearch.

On the other hand, you might be able to find photos in the archives in Clay, if you can manage a trip there.
Judy, do you have a Wiki link for these two people you mention above? I have Byrd relatives from the 1800s in central kentucky. I could see if they are connected .. and if so it might fill in some more info for both of us. Kalin

If you can afford an Ancestry.com account, it may be possible to find cousins who have photos. I've found photos of my dad and grandparents that I had never seen before. For me, it was worth the expense, but it took time to build my tree to the point I could get hints from remote relatives.

I can't remember, but small thumbnail photos may be visible using only the free account, so you can build your tree and find photos and potential cousins before spending the money for a paid account.
