Genealogy Can You Identify Our Family?

We have many more that we can't identify. As we learn who these are, we will create a page for them and add new photos that we need help with.
Some have last names on them, some have full names. Here are some to start.

If you can read German, please review this document and let us know what it says. Thank you in advance for your help.

Also we have studio photos that we will post with what names are written on them in the future, some from Ohio. These were sent from a family member but I do not recognize any of the names.

Would you help by sharing? We appreciate your photos, stories, and memories. If our family history is not shared, it will be lost forever.


Note: Please use only the index on this main page to search names. I am adding so many pages that I will update this index page daily to connect them and will copy the final index onto each page in the future. If you are searching for a female, search her father/brother/husband's name if you do not see hers.
