AncientFaces is a community-driven collection of photos. You can search by name but also browse by themes, people categories, date ranges, and places.
From the website: “AncientFaces.com was officially launched in 2000 by Founder & Creator Daniel J. Pinna, and his mother, Founder & Community and Content Director Kathy Pinna. Over time, AncientFaces has grown from just a few people with a simple concept that has evolved into a mission shared by millions around the world.”
For me, I found it useful to perform a search by a person’s name and to browse to a specific state and look through the photos and names. There is also a Biography section which is also useful to search and browse.
Personally, I have had no luck finding an ancestor or relative, but there are a lot of photos and Bios on the site, and it is certainly worth your time to search and browse.
