This photo of Clara Frech found it’s way home rather quickly one day. From the census info I tracked down, Iggy found a family tree, he left me the link I followed it and left an email message and in return Mike left me a message on this blog. Clara is the daughter of Mikes Great Great Grandfather. I believe that would make Clara his Great Aunt. I sent the photo off to Mike in Ohio.
Thank you so much. It is such a great photo. That is the Clara Frech that was born to Albert and Mary Frech. She was born Dec 1879 and lived in Columbus Ohio. Her father was a bartender who immigrated from Bavaria. Thank you again so much for such a treasure !!
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
Congratulations on finding yet another lost photo a new home to go to. Historical research at its best.ReplyDelete
I love all of the research that goes into finding homes for all of these old family treasures! Thanks for all that you do!ReplyDelete
You know, that comment by Mike made me stop to think a little - people immigrated from all over the world to this country to do all sorts of jobs, like bartending... It was truly a land of opportunity.ReplyDelete
Fine job once again Connie & Iggy!! Can't wait to dust off my research skills once again...last week on the seasonal job and it is back to working part-time, at least for a little bit, so I hope to be digging more frequently.!! ~AbraReplyDelete
I can only imagine the impact these photos have on the family when they arrive. New generations connect to their ancestors because of your blog and your research and your kindness. You should be proud of that. Congratulations!ReplyDelete
I do wish that the reunited families would forward a related image for you to include with your "full circle" posts.
Fantastic success, I am really enjoying these posts so much!ReplyDelete
I had 13 great uncle and aunts and I don't think I had ever met a one of them This is great that it gets to go to a relative.ReplyDelete
