Make sure you join the Facebook groups for the historical/genealogical societies where your ancestors lived. You may just come across posts that have photos of your family. It's also a great way to get in touch with distant cousins. My Grandma Smith was born in 1912 in Riverton, Iowa. Because several generations before her lived there as well, I have joined the Fremont County Iowa Genealogical Society Facebook group. This photo was recently posted on their page. It's the Riverton, Iowa, graduating class of 1909. My great grandfather's cousin is in here as is my great grandma's sister.

Some of their posts have even helped me to solidify relationships in my research. You never know what you might find.
