    I think this is fantastic news. Every state/county should do this.

    This will make it so much easier to ID them more quickly I would think.

    I think its a great idea.

    It will be a good source for the UID forum here at WS, that's for sure.

    I wish all states would do this. Seeing a real photo of the person can really make a huge difference. The reconstruction images are rarely as spot on as shows like Bones would have you think.

    Side note: any one else think it's ironic that the person you're supposed to contact if you have info regarding the UIDs is named Timothy Doe? I guess he chose the right career ;)

    I think it is a good idea for the unidentified.. I hope it is a useful tool for the unclaimed. There we have to research and find family.. Sometimes it can get tedious. At time we have to start in the early census records and move forward. A lot of the families for their reasons have lost or did not want to have contact with their family members and some know they are deceased and will not claim or just don't care.. It is sad.
