Iggy found an address for this Full Circle and I sent off a copy of the blog. ( Often I do that…many times my letter is just ignored…some people are just not interested.)
Melvin was thrilled. I was happy to return the photo to him.
Photo Number 1707 Herbert and Elsie Graffenius
What a wonderful surprise. My thanks to you for the photo (when received). It will complete a set. Enclosed please find the rest of the family.

Aunt Else (Elsie) was my Godmother. Herbert never married.
I have chased the Graffenius clan back to the 1720’s. This photo will fit into my family tree very nicely. Thanks again.
So another Full Circle!
Thanks for stopping by.
I am so glad that these two (in the photo) have a family member that remembers them!ReplyDelete
How wonderful to see more photos and to hear a bit more about the family.ReplyDelete
Happy for you all!ReplyDelete
Love what you do - preserving history, stories, and memories of special people.ReplyDelete
So neat for Melvin to fill us all in on the rest of the family in photos! A real treat. And a real researcher in his own right, pushing his way back to the early 1700s. Not an easy accomplishment.ReplyDelete
