An Alabama woman is putting mementos found in the debris from this week’s tornadoes on Facebook in hopes of reuniting the items with their owners.

Patty Bullion said she found lots of family photos, Bible pages, personal documents and other papers in her yard. She said a pregnant woman's ultrasound photo was the first thing she found outside her house in the small town of Lester, writes the Associated Press.

To help reunite people, Bullion took photos of the items and posted them on the Facebook page “Pictures and Documents Found After the April 27, 2011 Tornadoes." She is urging others to do the same.

So far, there are more than 550 photos and 40 items have been identified.
