Full Circle 92

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.

Dear Connie,

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.

Graffenius photo these go with number 1707

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.


  1. I am so glad that these two (in the photo) have a family member that remembers them!


  2. How wonderful to see more photos and to hear a bit more about the family.

  3. Love what you do - preserving history, stories, and memories of special people.

  4. 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.
